DROID frontman JAMES EASON has announced he's quitting the heavy metal band to pursue other musical projects.
Departing Eason, a founding member of the group, has apologised to fans who have been waiting for the band to put out a follow-up to 2007's album Droid, released after they signed to Korn rocker James Shaffer's record label.
But he's hoping his exit will allow him to focus on recruiting new bandmates for a different project.
He says, "I have spent the last 10-plus years in the band Droid so this is no easy decision for me (but) I have chosen to move on in (a) positive direction.
"My number one regret is that the Droid fans have had to wait so long for a second record, and then receive this news. Wherever I end up, I promise to make up for their super-long wait. You can count on that.
"I am looking for musicians who are driven, focused and hungry - these are the kinds of musicians I am looking for to play with as of now."
The pair teamed together for another round of S&M romance in 'Fifty Shades Darker'.
The musician worked with screenwriter Johnny Harris on the new movie.
Affleck was recently confirmed to be NOT directing 'The Batman', despite many rumours that he would be doing so.
But what about Jack White and Alicia Keys?
