Yesterday, longtime NEEDTOBREATHE drummer Joe Stillwell announced his departure from the band. A replacement drummer has yet to be announced. Stillwell wrote,

To the NEEDTOBREATHE fans and family,

To begin, I want to offer my sincere thanks to all of you who have supported our band through the years. I’ve been bandmates and brothers with Bear, Bo and Seth for the last 13 years, and those years have provided some of the most special memories of my life.

I’ve always known that this band was my calling, but now I feel God calling me to make a change. I’m writing this to let all of you know that after much prayer and consideration, I’ve decided to leave the band. As you can imagine, this was the most difficult decision I’ve ever made, but I know 100% in my spirit that it is the right one. I will truly miss being a part of NEEDTOBREATHE, and am honored to have created great music with my friends for so long. I type these words with great appreciation for all that has come before this and great anticipation for what’s ahead.

Bear, Bo and Seth… I love you guys. You’re my brothers. I know that NEEDTOBREATHE will continue to make incredible music, and I will be eternally thankful for my part in this story.

With Love and Peace,
Joe Stillwell
