Dropkick Lineup Change

A Message from Roy:

It is with both great sadness for what I will surely miss and a note of optimism for what is to come that I tell you I have played my last show with Dropkick. 

After the highs of releasing ‘Balance the Light’ (my 5th studio album with Dropkick) culminating in a memorable trip to Germany for the first time as a band, it seemed like the right time to look at what lay ahead.
I will truly miss Andrew, Mike, Ian and Scott who are among my best friends. Like many people, I’ll certainly be looking forward to Dropkick’s future offerings as a four piece (perhaps with the former 5th member dropping in occasionally!!)

Earlier you’ll notice I mentioned optimism for what’s to come! Some of you may be aware of some songs released under the monicker United Wire. Well, I’m happy to tell you there will now be a follow-up United Wire album which I hope to have completed by the end of 2016.
Yours Roy. W


This is obviously very sad news for us to share and we’ll miss Roy hugely in Dropkick and want to publicly thank him for re-joining the band 18 months ago and for playing a huge part in creating ‘Balance the Light’, an album we are very proud of. It’s been great fun playing and singing with our very talented chum throughout his 2nd time in Dropkick and he leaves with all our best wishes.

Here is one of the last gigs we played with Roy in the band from Norderstedt, Germany:
