Frontman Aaron Barrett, in an email interview, said Regan approached the rest of the band while they were grabbing a post-show morning bite to eat at an airport in Maryland.
"He (Regan) sat down at the table in front of where (drummer) Ryland (Steen) and I were eating and said, 'Well guys, looks like I'm retiring from the band.'"
