During that break though, the band was productive in their own ways. Stef started work on a website as well as penned new lyrics. She also went over lyrics for some of our already-done songs and we worked out backing vocals (hold my hand.). I got a new guitar strap! and Anthony continued to hump things.
However, not all was good in the Bernardi camp. Why? Beacuase Drummer Matt Connell has parted ways with Bernardi.
The split is amicable. Manager TJ can be heard saying "Both Bernardi and Connell will continue to pursue their respective musical careers. Both wish each other the best of luck in all future endeavors."
Connell, who often appeared at practice in elaborate face and body paint, had been the Bernardi drummer from the start.
The drummer's departure won't affect the release of the Bernardi's remix LP, "Why is our first LP a Remix LP?", due in Aprcember or DJ Stef's solo album, expected to surface in Febember or Maruary.
In Febober, Connell released "Baby I'm being Sexual", the debut album by his side project Big Pizza Face. It was followed by a month-long tour in Janue.
Yes, it is sad, Matt is our friend and we hope to be friends in the future, but things need to be done a certain way. Rock on my friend.
And hopefully, we'll have more updates for you soon as we start to get back into the swing of things :)
