Midnight Youth Frontman Quits07 September 2012
Redmore announced his departure from the group, which formed in 2006, on his Twitter.com page on Thursday (06Sep12).
In a post, he wrote, "After some of the hardest days of my life so far, I am sorry to announce that I've quit my band. Sorry to the band's fans that wanted more."
In a further entry on his blog, Redmore added, "When I joined Midnight Youth my ambition in life was to write and release an album - I didn't care what it cost or how it was received, I just wanted that record in my hand to share with my family, friends and, one day, kids.
"Once it was released I had acquired, briefly, that fleeting feeling of utter contentment in life. Then the record happened to be successful and I chose to leave my fulltime job and follow my music and a new set of goals. It was a huge life-change and one that I've followed for the past three years around the world, constantly soaking up the highs and lows and growing in my musical journey.
"Six years after that dream began I've come to the point of another new beginning. What I've recently discovered about myself is that, to be happy, productive and to grow more as a person, I need to make a fresh start. In order to do this, there is no doubt in my mind that I need to leave my band.
"I will forever be indebted to the guys in the band and the people who supported and fell in love with the songs we created and gave me a stage to perform upon. I have now chosen to pave my own street, pack my own bags, strip myself naked and, importantly, sing my own song."
