Following a pair of social media posts, two members of Band of Horses have announced their departure from the band. Bassist Bill Reynolds and guitarist Tyler Ramsey each shared statements revealing their decisions to quit the band.
Ramsey and Reynolds joined Band Of Horses in 2007 following the release of the group’s LP Cease To Begin. The pair appeared on subsequent albums including 2010’s Infinite Arms, 2012’s Mirage Rock and last year’s Why Are You OK.
“I am moving on to pursue other things,” Reynolds posted on Facebook. “I will be producing records, doing photography, and who knows, maybe I’ll go on the road again someday.”
In a post on Instagram, Ramsey declared an end to his run in BoH, writing in part, “I’m sure I will miss the beautifully dysfunctional family we became.” He also revealed plans for a solo album and tour later this year.
The current Band Of Horses lineup consists of founding member Ben Bridwell along with drummer Creighton Barrett and keyboardist Ryan Monroe.
