Two Members Leave Boysetsfire

Boysetsfire announced yesterday that they have lost two members of the group, drummer Matt Krupanski and his brother Marc Krupanski who played bass.

Guitarist Chad Istvan first broke the news to fans about Matt's departure with the following posting on Facebook: "I've written and erased this announcement a number of times over the last few months. I can't say whether it's that I don't know the right way to approach what I'm saying or if the act of saying it gives a certain finality to the words but here goes...

"Matt Krupanski, long-time friend, will not be playing with us anymore. He has a number of incredible opportunities in his life right now and understandably will pursue them. It turns out when we saw him reading books with titles like "why buildings stand up" and "why buildings fall down" it was a lot more than just a vague interest in architecture, it was a new passion. Matt graduated from the Pratt institute last spring after 5(?) challenging years learning things that make ZERO sense to me and now he will put that knowledge to good use.

"This is the spot that I get to with each revision and start to gush or whatever, but knowing Matt he wouldn't want that. I'll just end mine with this: love you, brother. Yer my boy, Blue!"

A short time later they posted this additional update: "Matt's brother Marc will no longer be playing bass with us. He would rather us not make a big fuss. We were happy to have you with us Marc, and sad to see you go. For all the crazy and bad news today...Chad, Josh, and Nathan will be sharing a ton of good news with you tomorrow involving the new recordings, new band members, as well as reasserting that all shows and tours are still on!!!!! Thank you guys so much for your patience and love!"
