"Some news... It's with great regret we have to announce that after 9 years of service, Ross is leaving the band. He has decided that the time has come to concentrate on different things. Obviously we are extremely sad to see him go. However, the good ship Hard-Fi will continue towards the 4th album which is very much within our sights. We ask you to join with us this day in raising a glass to an amazing gunslinger, whilst toasting the future of a new chapter for the band. The best is yet to come. Peace. The Fi."
