Today, on their Facebook page, Cherri Bomb announced the departure of vocalist/guitarist Julia Pierce.

Last  year was a break out year for Cherri Bomb, the Los Angeles quartet who performed on last year’s Warped Tour have already shared the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters, Filter and Smashing Pumpkins and have also played some of the top music festivals in the world including Sunset Strip Music Festival, Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, SXSW and Bamboozle.  Also last summer, their single "Shake the Ground"  appeared  on Marvel's The Avengers soundtrack alongside Soundgarden, Bush and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots.  Last May, Cherri Bomb releases their debut album "The End of Control."

Read the statement below:

Sometimes, things don’t end up the way we planned or hoped for. We are sorry to inform our fans and friends that Cherri Bomb has parted ways with Julia. Although this decision was extremely difficult, it gives us all the chance to seek out our individual creative paths.

We are thankful for the five years we have shared with Julia onstage and off and wish nothing but success to her in whatever road she chooses. The details of her departure are between us and Julia, please respect both her and Cherri Bomb with this difficult development and we hope you will be supportive and understanding to all of us.

It is not the first time that we have had to overcome adversity and probably will not be the last but we will always figure out a way to keep going and keep pushing forward. Most importantly, we will never change the passion we have for this band and the gratitude we have for the people we have met on this journey.
We have so many exciting things on the horizon and in development; writing new material, rehearsing a killer live show and putting the pieces back together. We will be playing with some temporary guest guitar players, some girls and some boys until we find the right fit for Cherri Bomb.

We want you to know that we love all of you and want to thank you for your support and being the best Bomb Squad ever.

XO
nia, miranda & Rena
