Just as the Warped Tour got on its way, iwrestledabearonce ran into a little problem: singer Krysta Cameron dropping off the tour after discovering she was pregnant. The band was in luck, though, as they were able to get Courtney LaPlante to fill in for the tour. However, the sudden switcharoo left many to question Cameron’s status in the band. Of course, she will likely be sitting out for the better part of the year as she prepares for her new arrival. But does Cameron intend to return to iwrestledabearonce? Well apparently, it’s not looking too good.
In a recent interview with PropertyOfZack.com, bassist Mike “Rickshaw” Martin and drummer Mikey Montgomery implied that Cameron would not be returning to the band. When asked whether she had left the group permanently, Martin replied “I’m going to say she’s permanently gone,” followed by Montgomery saying “Fingers crossed though.” Granted, there’s a strong possibility that the two were nearly goofing around. However, The Gauntlet claims that the band informed them during the Warped Tour’s NJ stop that Cameron indeed was not coming back. Furthermore, they supposedly revealed that they aren’t entirely sure whether LaPlante will be her permanent replacement.
But of course, iwrestledabearonce has yet to make an official announcement regarding the matter. And since the remaining of 2012 will see them touring around the world (with hopes of them recording new material by early 2013), it may be a while till anything becomes official.
