Last Wednesday, the pop-punk super band, Hawk Nelson, made an announcement on their website that lead vocalist Jason Dunn will be leaving the band this spring. Here’s what the band had to say:
We want to officially announce that Jason Dunn will be leaving Hawk Nelson at the beginning of May to pursue his solo career.
For 10 years we have climbed this mountain together. Hawk Nelson has gone through thick and thin, challenges and blessings. Jason is a brother, and we will miss everything he brings to the band. We know that God has a plan for him as well as for the future of Hawk Nelson. We’re excited to share about the future of Hawk Nelson very soon, and we constantly give God all the praise and glory.
Dunn has been busy recording a solo effort at Profile Studios in Vancouver, B.C. with producer Steve Kravac. Dunn’s new band is called Lights Go Down. The upcoming album, Abandon Progress, will be available this summer.
