Reel Big Fish have announced the departure of a member and the resumption of their tour with Aquabats.

The tour will kick off on January 13th in Little Rock, AR and will include Suburban Legends and Koo Koo Kangaroo.

RBF then head overseas with Suburban Legends in tow, from February 4 to March 7. New Riot and The Skints will round out the bill on select dates.

In other Reel Big Fish news, the band has just announced that longtime member Scott Klopfenstein has decided to retire from the band to spend more time with his family. Here's the skinny direct from the Fish's mouth:

Happy New Year!!!

We hope you all have had a relaxing break from school & work and had time to spend with family and friends during the holiday season!

We have some bittersweet news to officially announce that some have already known or figured out regarding Scott Klopfenstein, trumpet player and background vocalist of Reel Big Fish. He and his wife are expecting their first child and he has decided to retire from touring to dedicate his life to raising a family. Out of respect, to allow a solid decision we felt it was best to hold off on sharing the news until Scott was ready to give a full statement.
