Luke Holland has made the decision to leave The Word Alive at the end of this year, the band announced in a statement released online. The upcoming ‘Overdose’ tour will be his final run with the band.

“After almost five years of being a part of the TWA family, Luke Holland will be saying goodbye at the end of this year. The Overdose Tour will be his final tour. It’s time for Luke to explore other musical endeavors and pursue passions outside of the Word Alive. We wish him nothing but the best and sincerely support him in his future just as he supports us in ours.”

Holland says he doesn’t have any particular upcoming plans outside of The Word Alive at the moment, but he is open to any gig offers and hopes to make it a career.

“I don’t have anything in particular lined up, but I do want to focus even more on my craft and get back to what gave me a fanbase in the first place, which was YouTube. I have a lot of respect for my fans and know that they are the reason I’m not just a man who loves drumming, but rather a man who gets to make a career out of it. I am open to any gig offers currently, but am not in a rush by any means.” Holland tells Alternative Press.

Here is the band’s full statement:

“Dearest TWA friends and fans,
We’re writing you this afternoon with some bitter sweet news. After almost 5 years of being a part of the TWA family, Luke Holland will be saying goodbye at the end of this year. The Overdose Tour will be his final tour. We’ve been through so much together, and that is a bond that will last a life time. However, it’s time for Luke to explore other musical endeavors and pursue passions outside of The Word Alive. We wish him nothing but the best, and sincerely support him in his future just as he supports us in ours. We decided to let you know before the tour so you could have the opportunity to celebrate this chapter coming to an end with us, instead of being blind-sided at the start of the new year.

We’re continuing on, finishing the Dark Matter album cycle with some incredible tours all over the world in 2017. The Overdose Tour will feature our longest headlining set to date including songs we’ve never played live before, as well as some songs we haven’t played in years. Make sure you grab your general admission tickets at wearethewordalive.com and if your heart desires, VIP tickets at TWA.soundrink.com

We look forward to sharing our music with you for years to come.

See you soon,
Telle, Tony, Zack, Daniel & Luke”
