Lydia Announces New Album And Departure Of Mindy White
After announcing a solo album that's tentative for release later this year, Mindy White has decided to leave the band Lydia.
I'm writing to announce something that seems to have been slowly circling around the last few weeks. To those who've been wondering; I am, in fact, parting ways from Lydia. I have to say how INCREDIBLY hard this is for me to do. It feels more like losing my own child than just an occupation, but when you have such a passion for something and the path you're on to pursue that is filled with difficult obstacles, or has no heart behind it, you have to question it. I must say that there are no hurt feelings between the band and I. Those guys are like my brothers and honestly, I can't wait to see the things they will go on to do.
I am GENUINELY sorry to those friends who might be upset about this, but please do understand that it's something I merely have to do at this time. I hope you can moreso go on to support this decision and know that you guys are the only reason I've even made it this long. I can also assure you that I am not, by any means, done playing music! I guess everything eventually runs it's course, and for me with Lydia, that time has come.
I love you all more than I can even explain. Mindy
Also the band has announced that they will be releasing a new album tentatively for June 2010. Check out the teaser video below with new song clips.
