"Band quit! F--- them! They are boring rich kids who can't play for s--- anyways," the singer wrote on his Twitter feed. "Say hello to your ugly and boring wifes, opps I mean life guys, suck it." [sic]
The band's walkout means Reatard's North American tour -- as well as forthcoming visits to the UK, Ireland and Europe – are now in doubt.
Reatard later told NME, "I honestly love those guys no matter what my dumb Twitter post says. They kinda quit out of nowhere, me and the tour manager thought it was a joke!"
He also told the site he was already looking for replacement band members, saying: ""All the bulls*** aside our band is a really easy one to be in - Ride in the van listen to jams, load in gear, eat great food, drink free beer, get paid well, load out, go to the hotel, repeat."
No reason has yet been given why Reatard's band decided to walk out.
