On Friday, Moore posted a statement on his personal Facebook page in which he claimed that SICK PUPPIES' October 20 announcement that he was leaving the band "was the first [he] had heard of it." He added: "The truth is that there was tension in the band after the many years of touring."I am so touched by the messages from you all asking me if I will be continuing in music and the answer is, obviously, 'Yes.'" "For those of you I may lose during this time, I will miss you."For those of you who will stand by me, I will not let you down. 'Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.'" Moore added that he has "been locked out" of all the SICK PUPPIES social media sites and mailing lists since his departure from the band was first announced.
