Summer is the most popular time of year for camping, barbecues, watching baseball–and, apparently, weddings. So it should come as no surprise that we’ve had an emergence of news bits about bands splitting up or changing members due to upcoming nuptials. The latest is local hardcore group Screwtape Letters, which just announced that bassist Derek Dalene will leave the band after its show with Texas In July, An Early Ending, Ripper, The Closure and The Murlesque at The Blue Room at Billiards of Springfield July 10. It appears Dalene and his soon-to-be wife will be moving to Connecticut sometime after the wedding. If you’re a fan of the band, however, take heart; indications are that the group will find a replacement and continue. That said, if you’re a fan of the band in its present configuration, July 10 is the date you need to remember.
