Those attending Edward
Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros performances over the past few weeks have noticed the
absence of singer Jade Castrinos. Neither the band or Castrinos had remarked about
the circumstances that led to her departure until Jade posted "for seven years i sang and
wrote music with edward sharpe. they voted me off of tour a week before they left, via
email. lol" on her Instagram

The band's front man, Alex Ebert, addressed Castrinos' comment with a Facebook post that
has since been deleted. Ebert's note read:
Jade has spoken out about not being on this tour. Her statement left a lot of things to
the imagination. Out of respect for Jade, I will keep it that way.
Only we must now explain that simply and sadly, we did not feel right doing this tour with
Jade. That fact breaks my heart in ways I don't want to describe.
With hope with all of ourselves that we reunite with Jade again, free-spirited, and with
that daring love that is our only foundation.
love for you all.
We love what Jade brings to the Zeros and hope they are able to reconcile sooner rather
than later. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are set to perform at Tulsa's Cain Ballroom
