Long time DOG FASHION DISCO keyboardist Jeff Siegel has posted the following message regarding his decision to leave the band:
“Of all the decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life, this has been one of the hardest.
As some of you may have heard, I will no longer be touring with DOG FASHION DISCO. While there are very few things in this life that have made me as happy as being a part of this incredible group of musicians, I was recently presented with an opportunity that I just could not turn down. And unfortunately, this opportunity will not allow me the freedom to tour any longer.
Taking my place will be Tim Swanson, from DUCT TAPE MUSTACHE. He’s a hell of a keyboardist and is already fitting in nicely. I hope you’ll all show him some quality DFD love. Todd and Wendy are lubing him up and breaking him in now ? so he’ll be ready for you by the time the band rolls into your town.
Jokes aside, I just want to let all of you know that you mean the world to me. You have come out to our shows, put us up in your homes and spent your hard-earned money on our albums and t-shirts. You’ve continuously given us the support we’ve always needed to keep going. And for that, I’m extremely grateful.
In the future, I will be working closely with Derek and Ron to help push DFD to the next level. So I won’t completely disappear. In fact, some of you on the street team may be hearing from me soon. I’ll also be coming out to some of the shows to shoot some footage for the next DVD.
In the meantime, enjoy the new album and don’t masturbate in public. It’s so cliché.
I love you all!
