Pennywise frontman Jim Lindberg has announced he has left the band.

“After 20 years, nine albums and thousands of shows around the world, my time in Pennywise has come to an end,” said Lindberg. “Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for. There are few things that made me more proud than seeing people at our shows singing our songs, and it’s your support and encouragement that’s kept me going this long. I would sincerely like to thank everyone who helped us along the way and wish everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success.”

The remaining members of Pennywise [Fletcher Dragge, Byron McMackin and Randy Bradbury] issued a statement on the departure via their Myspace page.

“Pennywise has long stood behind the motto that you should always follow your heart and pursue what makes you happy, and we wish Jim the best of luck in his new ventures, whatever they may be,” it reads. “Pennywise has become a way of life for a lot of people, and has definitely become a way of life for us. As the three remaining members of Pennywise, we feel that we are not done delivering our message to our fans.

”The band has always been about moving forward in life no matter what obstacles stand in front of you,” it continues. “We will begin our search for a new singer immediately. We will continue to tour the world and we are looking forward to writing new music. We’ve had a lot of good times and survived the hard times thanks to the undying support of our fans. We’re looking forward to what the future may bring.”

Lindberg is current working on a documentary based on his book Punk Rock Dad and will begin recording for a new release.
