เป็นข่าวที่น่าเสียดายกับแฟนๆวง Foster The People เลยทีเดียวที่มือกลองยุคบุกเบิกอย่าง ‘Mark Pontius’ ได้ประกาศลาออกจากวง เพื่อที่จะไปใช้เวลากับครอบครัวให้มากขึ้น โดยโพสรูปข้อมความผ่านโซเชียลมีเดียของวงโดยมีข้อความว่า

“I’ve struggled with finding the words to begin this announcement so I guess I’ll just rip off the band-aid and say that I’ve decided to leave the band I helped start 11 years ago, Foster the People,” Pontius began the note. “As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our first record Torches, I’ve been flooded with memories of our sudden success, achieving all of my career aspirations in a few short years and the beautiful moments spent with my brothers in the band. What a privilege it all was, I’m eternally grateful for all of it.

“I’ve grown up a lot since we started out, and in the couple of years since our last live show, my whole life has changed in every way,” he continued. “I’ve had a lot of time to myself to reflect on what truly matters.” In the note, the father of a 2-year-old daughter told fans that he hopes to spend his time “watching my child grow up” now that he’s “checked everything off my career bucket list.”

“I will miss Mark, Isom and Sean, they are my family forever and I’m sure we will work together again one day,” he said of his Foster bandmates, adding, “As for me, I’ve got a few ideas for the future but I’m just going to take it one day at a time for now.”
