Longtime Pennywise fans will be sad to know that lead singer and songwriter Jim Lindberg announced that he’s leaving the band. He gave this statement:
“After 20 years, nine albums and thousands of shows around the world, my time in Pennywise has come to an end. Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for. There are few things that made me more proud than seeing people at our shows singing our songs, and it’s your support and encouragement that’s kept me going this long. I would sincerely like to thank everyone who helped us along the way and wish everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success. Yours truly, Jim.”
Lindberg is currently working on a documentary based on his book titled, Punk Rock Dad, and is set to begin recording for an as yet untitled release. He is also a founder and consultant for the Video On Demand action sports and music network, Havoc TV.
Here’s a fitting song:
