Jim Dalton joins Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
Although we heard grumblings about this last week, we held off reporting anything until we received confirmation. (You know, journalistic due diligence and all that.) Well, we now have confirmation: Railbenders frontman Jim Dalton has been asked to join Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers to replace departing guitarist Steve Larson. Dalton makes it clear, though, in a statement posted after the jump, that the Railbenders will not cease to be an ongoing concern for him and his bandmates, bassist Tyson Murray, guitarist Tony Nascar and drummer Graham Haworth. Congrats, JD!
For the record, this is NOT the end of the Railbenders. I have put my heart and soul into this band for 8 years. However, the number of shows will obviously be fewer. We will not be touring on our own due to RCPM's heavy touring schedule, but we will continue to play shows in the region...."
