STS9 has postponed its four upcoming Colorado shows as the band announces that it is parting ways with bassist David Murphy.
A statement from STS9 reads:
In life, the only constant is change. We try to embrace this in our music and in our lives and it’s in this spirit that we announce STS9 and bassist David Murphy are parting ways. We are postponing our upcoming winter tour dates through February. We’ll miss David and wish him the best on his journey ahead.
To our fans, we can’t thank you enough for your understanding and continuous support. We are thrilled for the future of STS9 and can’t wait to share it with you.
STS9 did not provide any details as to why Murphy, a Colorado musician, is leaving the group. Since forming in the late ’90s the band has played Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and headlined numerous shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Most recently STS9 played two nights at the mountain amphitheater with Nas, AraabMuzik, XXYYXX, Tycho and Gold Panda.
Refunds are available at point of purchase for shows at Belly Up, Aspen on Jan. 29 and 30 and two shows at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.
