Soon, there will be one less ego in the Josephine Collective. Keyboard player and singer Albert John Redwine is quitting. According to official MySpace ramblings credited to JoCo frontman Dillon Teague Devoe, the parting is amicable.
Said Devoe in a bulletin: “as far as albert goes, we are all still friends. we will continue to be friends. we will continue to fuck shit up around town. we will continue our quest for world domination.. haha.”
Redwine will play with JoCo this weekend, too, at the Creepy Crawl in St. Louis on Friday. JoCo’s farewell-to-Redwine show is tentatively scheduled for December 16 at the Grand Emporium. Redwine’s departure will knock the rowdy Josephine Collective’s Warner Bros.-signed roster down to six. Word is that the band will continue making angsty emo pop without him. That’s probably for the best. They couldn’t possibly find a replacement with a better name.
The sad thing is, the moniker goes to waste in Fire For Effect. For that act, Redwine just calls himself ULTRADEMON. Seriously.
ULTRADEMON. Of course.
