Alt-Rock Band Book of Law Won't Be the Same

Book of Law singer David Davis is leaving the shoegaze/alt-rock band after more than a year together. The group was formed in late 2007 by ex-members of the now-defunct bands Adoration and the Red Cloud. In an official statement released by Davis, the singer says: "As of last week, I am officially not in the Book of Law anymore. It was a hard decision to make, but I have had a serious urge to play and learn in another city for a long time now. I'm considering finishing school in either California or New York. There I would also play in another band and do some touring on the weekends. Truth be told, this is just a good time for me to move, and if I don't do it now, I might not get the chance later in life. I am deeply sorry to all the people who have sunk so much hope into us, and I truly, truly, truly appreciate everyone who donated their talents and energies to us. You are very special to us. I think the guys might be changing the name or something; I'm not sure what's going to happen yet. My new project will most likely be called Palace of Fragments."

In a post on the band's MySpace page, guitarist Matt Ross writes, "That kinda leaves things up in the air for now. We'll keep you updated as soon as we figure what we're doing."
