Amos Is Leaving Attaboy :(

Alas, it's true. Attaboy's lead singer Amos is leaving the band. :( They have already announced that guitarist Matt will now be the lead singer, which I think is rather cool. Matt already sings background vocals from the band, so it ought to be interesting to hear some new Attaboy music soon. Here's Amos' farewell letter as was seen in the latest Attaboy newsletter:

Hey everybody! It’s Amos from Attaboy.

Most of you know that I’ll be leaving the band this month to pursue further education. This transition has been truly a joy as we’ve introduced our new lead singer, Matt, to our friends and fans this summer. Although I’ll be sad to leave the brotherhood of our band, we’re all really excited for what the future holds.

The reason for this email is to invite you all to share in our joy by attending my last concert with Attaboy on August 21st in Huntington, IN. Our friends Mannequin Angels and Jared Mahone will be the opening acts. I know it’s quite a distance for some of you, but consider yourself personally invited to come sing, dance and hang out, as well as meet our new singer, Matt. Can’t wait to do this one more time with you all!

8/21 - Huntington, IN
7:00 pm. $2 suggested donation.
College Park Church, 1945 College Ave.

For more information, please visit www.attaboyonline.com/tour. We hope to see you soon!

Blessings,
Amos from Attaboy

You can also read the official announcement that Amos made on the news page on the band's website.  Amos, we'll miss you, but it's awesome that you're leaving for such a good cause. God bless!
