Another departure in the punk world. The Dropkick Murphys announced through their facebook page that their long time bagpiper Josh Wallace, better known as Scruffy was departing the band.
After joining the band in 2003, Scruffy has been with the band solidly aside from a brief hiatus on the bands more recent shows. Though a statement from Scruffy is yet to be released, the bands announcement does seem to be an amicable split.
There is currently no news on if the band will look for a replacement or continue to tour without a bagpiper.
