Earlier this week via her Tumblr, Titus Andronicus violinist/guitarist Amy Klein announced her amicable split from the band in order to get involved with other musical efforts.Titus Andronicus-5

“I am not quitting music, just gonna be focusing on my own band from now on,” she wrote via the Tumblr post.

She went on to reveal that there was no big fallout between her and the group, saying simply that it was time for her to move on. In response to her departure, the rest of Titus Andronicus have posted a video tribute to their former bandmate on their own blog.

Check out the full statement here.  Klein explains her decision to leave the group in the post as follows:

No, there was no big fight or anything—no wild partying, drug, or alcohol addiction leading to me getting fired—no dramatic story—nothing like that. It is just time for me to move on.

I want to say an enormous thank you to every one of you for supporting me over the past two years, for cheering wildly at shows, for freaking the fuck out in insane circle pits, for singing along with every word, and for devoting yourself to this music and to this band with a passion that is downright inspiring. For me, the years I have spent in this band have been a time of transformation and self-discovery, and I know it is the power of music and the people who believe in it that have made me the person I am today.

I can’t even explain what it is like to go from believing you are a total loser to believing that you are an individual with a voice. I think sooner or later everyone learns how to believe in herself, but the thing is, not everyone is lucky enough to get to do this in front of an audience filled with people like you.
