Children Collide Drummer Ryan Caesar Quits

Written by Brayden Darke on February 29, 2012

Children Collide have announced the departure of Ryan Caesar in a mutual decision made this week. Caesar has been with the band since early 2007, the fourth drummer since the band’s inception in 2004. The other two members Johnny and Heath will continue to write and tour until a new member is found.

Ryan said of his departure:

“It saddens me deeply to announce this unfortunate news. My relationships with my dear friend Heath Crawley, everyone at Crucial Music and all others involved with the band have been of foremost importance to me and have been the catalyst for the significant endurance that both I and I’m sure John have shown towards each other for these past few years.

With those close friendships in mind it is with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from Children Collide at the conclusion of this next tour. The band cannot function as it should, or continue forward at all with the current tensions, and the situation – looked at from any perspective, can only be resolved by my leaving. I thank each and every person who has supported us thus far and those who have worked so hard for us. I’m eternally sorry that there was not more to give. I love you all.” – Ryan.

In a fitting farewell to Ryan, he will join the band on the imminent Sword to a Gunfight single tour, which launches into action all over the country through March and April.
