Marc Orrell Exits Dropkick Murphys

Marc Orrell announced that he is leaving Dropkick Murphys to fans on the ban’s mailing list. Orrell writes:

Dear DKM friends & fans,

You may have heard some talk that I am going to stop playing with the Dropkick Murphys. I wanted to confirm that the rumors are true and I am leaving the band. I’m very grateful for everything playing with DKM has brought me and I’m sad to be going but I feel like the time has come for me to try working on different styles of music and some of my own projects, I’m ready to spread my wings as they say.

I’ve been pickin’, ticklin’, strummin’, squeezin’, crashin’, trashin’ and smashin’ with the Dropkicks for many years and am proud to have been a part of all the achievements and success we’ve had. However the greatest achievement of all has been the friends I’ve made and the people I’ve met along the way. Everyone has always supported me and the rest of the guys 100% in everything we’ve done which makes my leaving all the more difficult.
