LA’s The Human Abstract have parted ways with their singer, Travis Richter. He explains here:
“A couple months ago I told the guys I wasn’t going to tour anymore for a couple reasons. One, I’m turning 30 and have given all my time to bands and the road, and I want to be able to start a family and see my parents and grandparents more. Secondly, I graduated with an audio production degree, and I feel myself being pulled into that world as more of a full time position. I think The Human Abstract is an amazingly gifted group of musicians with mind bending potential and I couldn’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done for me since I joined the band in feb of 2010. The fans have also been more than amazing and accepted me into the THA family, and for that I sincerely thank you!”
His touring replacement will be Ryan Devlin from San Diego’s Corelia. Check out a video of Devlin’s vocal chops here. No word yet as to if he will be a permanent addition. The Human Abstract are preparing to head out on the “Frak the Gods” tour with Periphery, Textures, and The Contortionist. Check here for tour dates.
The Human Abstract’s most recent release and Travis Richter’s only recording with them was “Digital Veil” on E1.
