There are some big changes happening for hard rock band Invidia. The Las Vegas band revealed frontman Travis Johnson has left the group. Johnson has decided to leave to focus his time as the bassist for In This Moment.
"We respect Travis' choice to honor his commitment to In This Moment but it left us in a tough spot. It's hard for us as well - Travis is family and is part of the Invidia story. We are beyond happy that Evan was interested and fits in so well in the Invidia camp. He's a guy we all know well and the band as well as the fans are in great hands. We sincerely hope you will all welcome Evan to the fold like we have and come see us on tour this summer," the band said in a statement.
Johnson also released a statement saying it was a tough choice to make, but one had that had to be done. Read what he had to say here.
