Trophy Eyes:

“It’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Andrew today. You were a rock for all of us in Trophy Eyes, always down for anything and capable of everything. All these years spent breaking our backs and ceaselessly hoping;

they’d have been nothing without you.

It’s been an honour to watch you grow from Evel Kneivel into a loving husband, and now, a proud father. Best of luck in the next stage of life, old friend, and enjoy the hard fought for time with your family- your other one will be always waiting for you.”

Andrew Hallett has released his own statement on departing from the band:

“What an absolute journey.

From sleeping on the side of the road and playing only to the support bands to travelling the world, playing to thousands of people while getting paid to do it.

I am left with so many beautiful memories and I am so grateful to have been part of it.

Whilst I will miss playing in Trophy Eyes greatly, I have so many new memories to make with my little family, my next adventure is only just beginning.

While I’ve got this moment I’d like to thank everyone; My friends and family, all our crew over the years, Hopeless Records and of course our fans.

Special shoutout to Eddie Deal and Shane

Edwards, thank you for always believing in us.

And finally my band; John, Jeremy, Blake, Kev and Cal. I couldn’t ask for a more genuine, talented and funny group of people to have done this thing with. I love you guys.

I got to live the dream.”

Thank you.

Trophy Eyes are set to play two shows in the UK this May as part of this years Slam Dunk Festival on 27th and 28th May in Hatfield and Leeds respectively.
