Free Throw drummer

Free Throw drummer, Zach, has left the band.  The band issued this statement and issued an open call for their next drummer:

Dear friends,

It’s a sad day to announce Zach has decided to part ways with the band to focus on his life outside of Free Throw. There is no bad blood and we understand completely. We wish him well on his endeavors. On that note, we will be looking for a new drummer in the coming months. Feel free to message us on here or through email We’ll be announcing Zach’s farewell shows soon and keep you all updated.
