Hot Chelle Rae have released the video for their new song “Recklessly,” which will be on their upcoming third album. The video features footage from their summer shows, plus a tribute at the end for bassist Ian Keaggy who will be leaving the band to pursue personal projects.
Today, October 31, 2013, Hot Chelle Rae announced that Ian is leaving the band:
Dearest Fans, Friends, and Family,
Today marks the beginning of a new life for me. I’ve made the final decision to officially leave Hot Chelle Rae. Yes, this means I will from here on out, no longer be a part of the band. This is a decision that has been on my heart for a very long time. I have countless, priceless memories with the guys from the past seven years. We rose from the very bottom of the entertainment industry, and succeeded in making a name for ourselves. This doesn’t mean Hot Chelle Rae is over. They will continue on without me and I wish them the absolute very best. I love Ryan, Nash, and Jamie like brothers. We have been through thick and thin together, and those memories will never, ever be forgotten.
This will come as an absolute shock to many of you, and for that I apologize. For me, I felt it was my time to move on. I am a dreamer and have lived daily with aspirations of so much beyond my position in HCR. Since the last show I played with them on September 20th, I have been trying to grasp the idea of how to start over. For the past few years, all i’ve known is HCR, it is what i lived and breathed. Now, the freedom allotted to me will open doors that I’m overwhelmingly excited to go through. I haven’t allowed myself any down time and have jumped right in to working diligently and tirelessly doing the two things I do best; making music and taking pictures. I’m working for the first time on my own studio album, a dream of mine since I started writing music at the age of 16. I can’t wait to share this part of who I am with the world.
I want to thank the fans of HCR for being THE BEST. You all have the biggest hearts, and have shown so much love for all of us individually since the beginning and for that i am so grateful. Please don’t take this change as a negative thing, because it is quite the opposite. Let us all move forward together. The future is bright and beautiful. I am so blessed.
From Hot Chelle Rae:
Dear Hot Chelle Rae Fans,
Today is very bittersweet for Hot Chelle Rae. After spending the last six years working like crazy, and putting in more work than you can ever know, our friend and bass player Ian Keaggy has decided to leave the band in order to pursue some of his other passions. We’ve taken HCR from a barn, to traveling the world, to where we are today … and couldn’t have done it without him. Being in this band is more than a full time job, and knowing how talented Ian is in MANY fields, we wish nothing but the best for him as he spends time on some of the things he’s sacrificed in order to be part of HCR.
So today begins a new chapter for Hot Chelle Rae and we want to be clear in saying that we are in NO way slowing down. Quite the opposite. We are working day and night to finish our new album which we will launch with it’s first official single in early 2014 to be followed by the full album shortly thereafter.
In the meantime, we have an exclusive gift for our fans. Later today, we’ll be releasing a new video for a song from the upcoming album. The song is called “Recklessly” and the video features a collection of footage from our travels around the world including our tour last summer with Justin Bieber and our Japanese tour in August. We’ve received an incredible response from our fans for this song and felt like this video was the perfect way to look back, reflect and say thank you to all of you for always sticking by us as we move forward.
We hope you enjoy the video … and please join us in wishing our friend and bass player the best of luck. We love you Ian.
Ryan, Nash and Jamie
Hot Chelle Rae
On a personal note, from Jenn & Sara of HotChelleRaeFans.com:
We are so shocked and saddened that you are leaving Hot Chelle Rae, but are also so proud of you. You, Ryan, Nash, and Jamie have accomplished so much as a band these past few years. We’ve been lucky enough to see you guys in concert and see in person just how much passion you have for your music. You, especially, have taught us how to properly live life – to the fullest and through your dreams. You have shown us your true determination and to always put so much passion into our work. We will miss seeing you play your bass on the right side of the stage and that big smile you have when the fans sing along during a Hot Chelle Rae concert. Yet, we are so blessed to have seen you perform live and meet you. Thank you for being such a gentlemen and making so many memories for us. On behalf of all of your Beautiful Freaks, we love you and wish you the best of luck with your solo album and future endeavors. We cannot wait to hear more music from you! <3
