"We, as a band, are grateful for all the good times and creativity that both Stet Howland and Sean Kelly brought and shared with the band. More than that, we are blessed to have them as brothers, a bond that will always remain. "Both Stet and Sean will always be a part of the FOUR BY FATE family and we wish them nothing but tremendous success in all that they do. We hope to cross paths again in the not-so-distant future. "As of this week, six songs went out into the hands of very interested parties that will eventually be a part of the launching of our release, tentatively titled 'Rhythm Of The Curve'. "It won't be too much longer before you have a full-length CD, download, video and more in your 'fateful' hands." States Sean Kelly: "While the time has come for me to focus on new musical horizons, I want to extend my very best wishes to John, Tod, Pat and A.J., all players and people of the finest caliber. I also want to thank Stet Howland for the good times and friendship we shared, a true drum legend! It was an honour to launch the good ship FOUR BY FATE with John, Tod, and Stet.... long may it sail!" Adds Stet Howland: "I love these guys and we will all continue to rock and cross paths down the line."
