Maroon 5 here with an official announcement that our keyboardist Jesse Carmichael will be taking a temporary break from the band to pursue more full time studies in music and the healing arts while the rest of us, including PJ Morton (who will continue to tour with the group) make the fourth album and take it on the road. Jesse is looking forward to coming back to record and perform with us after this break for the the next album.
We love Jesse, and wish him nothing but the best on his time off! If you want to keep up with what he's doing during this time check him out at @jrcarmichael on twitter. Now we gotta get back into the studio and get to work! Thanks for all your love and support.
- Adam, James, Jesse, Mickey, and Matt
