Vocalist Chris Dicker has decided to part ways with House vs Hurricane. Dicker issued the following statement:

“I don’t wish to ramble on and make this any more about me than it should be. I’ve made the choice to be truthful to higher priorities in my life to this point, but that is not without saying that the past 5 years with Chris and Ryan, and the fleeting few years with Dylan and Sam, have been the best years of my life to date. I wish them nothing but good fortune and happiness in the future, and wish to see them achieve everything they dream with this band as their medium. I’ll continue to play music always, just not in such a full-time capacity. To anybody who has let me into their home, shared something kind or encouraging, or generally supported me in any way without being asked to do so, Thank you. My last shows with the band will be scattered throughout November, with a final show in our home town in December. So, if you’ve ever been into HvH, please come out and share them with me for the last time.”

Vocalist/guitarist Ryan McLerie remarked, “Obviously Chris was a huge part of the band, not only as a member, but as a friend. I/We sincerely wish him every blessing as he takes on a new chapter of his life, he is a gifted writer so be sure to keep an eye out for his future work.”
