Particle Announce New Lineup, Extensive Tour and More

JamBase is reporting that Particle have announced a new lineup, as well as an extensive 2014 tour. The band have also revealed that they will be releasing their first studio album since 2004’s Launchpad in the coming year, in addition to a number of archived albums, EPs, remixes and videos.

Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz told JamBase that founding members Darren Pujalet and Eric Gould have decided to leave the band after starting families. The pair will be replaced by Clay Parnell (Brothers Past) and Brandon Draper (Quixotic), with Molitz and longtime guitarists Ben Combe rounding out the lineup.

It is bad enough all you do is repeat stories that appear on JamBase.com FIRST ... But, if you’re going to plagarize at least get it CORRECT!! “Molitz tells JamBase that Particle members Darren Pujalet and Eric Gould have both started families and are unavailable to tour at length, but that each will likely guest with the new Particle lineup at points during the tour.”

Not Sold On Line-Up. Just break the band up and move on. Steve will be the only founding member. Weak! Your not particle anymore.

There is no one from BP with the name “Glay”! However I will now start calling him Uncle Glay instead of Uncle Clay. I support Particle again!
