Simon is leaving the band to focus on his studies.
Read his statement below:
Hey, this is Simon.
Unfortunately I have to tell you, that As I Rise and I will go separate ways.
This has nothing to do with the band members. We are still good friends.
For me, it was a really hard decision to make but considering the current developments in my life it is the only reasonable choice.
The band has been taking up more and more time and unfortunately, it’s impossible for me to manage the band and my studies at the same time and I don’t want to affect the band negatively in any way.
Of course, it was a sad decision but after having made it, I look into the future with a positive feeling, as much for As I Rise as for me.
I am so grateful for the awesome time with the boys and wish them all the best in the world!
We wish him all the best and love him like a brother!
– As I Rise
