Lead singer Steven Page quits Barenaked Ladies after 20 years.

By mutual agreement, Steven Page will be parting company with the remaining members of Barenaked Ladies. Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart will continue recording and touring together as Barenaked Ladies. Steven Page will pursue solo projects including theatrical opportunities while the band enters the studio in April 2009, and hits the road in the fall.

Page says "These guys are my brothers. We've grown up together over the past twenty years. I love them and wish them all the best in the future."

The band also wish Steven well in all of his endeavors. Ed Robertson says: "It's the start of a new chapter for all of us. Here's to the future!"

Everyone is looking forward to making new music and thanks their fans for their support.

omg this is so sad, BNL has been my favorite band for the past 12 years! It's not going to be the same without Steve :(

When I was little, my sister and I used to screech that line at the top of our lungs.

Oh BNL, I will miss you.

jusdayne 25th-Feb-2009 05:28 am (UTC)
probably, i read an article about the whole thing in McLean's, i think he suffers from depression, probably not himself, seems like a different guy
reens 25th-Feb-2009 12:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'd figure that would have something to do with it.
They release a kid's CD and then *wham* he get's nailed with a drugs charge.
Not great for PR.
lilmetalfingers 25th-Feb-2009 03:43 pm (UTC)

i love them, but in an ironic kind of way since their music is so funny/bad
however, NOBODY COULD LIKE NICKELBACK IRONICALLY. therein lies the difference
