Park is Closing
Below is a message from Ladd about the departure to their fans: "Dear fans and friends, During the course of the past months my priorities concerning Park, have changed due to personal affairs in my life. These changes have lead me to ultimately quit the band. It is a decision that I have been pining over for quite some time now, as I did not want to make a rash choice. For the past ten years being in Park is all I have known, and leaving that is scary, yet I wouldn't trade that time for anything else in the world. The friends we have made, places we've been, floors we've slept on, and shows we have played are unimaginable. It is much more than I ever thought we would accomplish.
I would like to thank everyone at Lobster Records and Arsenal Management, for taking a chance on us, former band mates, our fans, friends, and relatives who supported us through the last decade. There's no way we could have ever have accomplished what we did without you. I'm not going to name all of you because the list would be way to long and I would be afraid of leaving someone out, but I'm sure you all know who you are. You have given us the greatest gift a musician could ever receive. You believed in us."
