It was announced on Valentine’s Day via the band’s website that the once quartet of Gentlemen is now a trio, as Michael, Alexander and Andrew say goodbye to former band member but still close friend, Jason Rosen. As explained in an open letter to their fans and friends, Jason’s decision to leave Honor Society was for creative/artistic reasons and the 4 will remain friends.
Honor Society burst onto the music scene back in 2009 thanks to this trio of brothers, the brothers Jonas to be exact, ‘discovering’ the band and having them open for them on their worldwide stadium tour. This exposed the band to a world of new fans and opportunities, including a song on the Bandslam soundtrack “”Where Are You Now”) and one on the 2010 Team USA Olympic soundtrack (“Can’t Box Me In”).
The band split from Jonas Records in 2011 and continued making music and touring independently, releasing more singles (“Living A Lie,” “Hurricane,” & “Serendipity”) and albums (“A Tale Of Risky Business: Part 2” & “Serendipity”) that have had respectable success on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Touring is what the band is best at though. They put on an amazing, high-energy show and just enjoy meeting their fans.
Michael, Alexander and Andrew will continue under the Honor Society name and are currently on tour promoting the “Serendipity” EP. Catch the trio on AXSLive Wednesday February 27, 2013 @ 10pm EST
Wednesday February 27, 2013 @ 10pm ESTperforming 2 songs!
Jason is also keeping himself quite busy. He is currently in the studio working on music for his new band Smoke Season. Gabrielle Wortman joins Jason in the band and they classify their sound as alternative rock. Head over to their website for a download of their first single ‘Soliel.’
As a long time fan of the boys of Honor Society I was quite surprised by the announcement when I found out. But I support all for of them in whatever they want to do and frankly I am quite excited about the future music fans will be getting from both bands in the coming months.
