Though the announcement of Mead’s departure was just made official yesterday, Mead apparently severed her professional relationship and responsibilities with Zig Zag America shortly after the band abruptly went on hiatus in Mid-April. Zig Zag America’s abrupt hiatus had forced Mead to cancel several pre-booked show dates including the bands participation on a scheduled tour with Undercover Betty, Kevin Keene and Three Killer Buds.
Shortly after Mead’s departure, Zig Zag America drummer, Chad Henderson, also parted ways with the band as well. Henderson had initially joined Zig Zag America in early November of 2013, following the departure of former drummer, Bobby Walker.
Since his departure from the band, Henderson has been in negotiations with another band, working out a deal to replace their current drummer. Due to the deal still being in negotiations, Henderson is not yet at liberty to say what band it is, but does say that the band is a national recording and touring act currently signed to a record label.
No official announcement has been issued yet by Zig Zag America in regards to whether or not the band has replaced Henderson or Mead yet, or to what the future plans even are for the band.
Prior to Zig Zag America’s abrupt hiatus, and the departure of Henderson and Mead, The band was negotiating a record deal with a local independent record label. Whether or not Henderson or Mead’s departure from the band will have any effect on the record deal is unknown.
