A letter to MB20 fans– People are pushing hard for an answer about rumors of a Matchbox Twenty breakup, so I will attempt to provide one here. I wish things were different and I felt differently about it, but several weeks ago I made the other members aware that I am leaving the group. This however, should not be taken as an announcement of the band's dissolution because I only speak on my own behalf. For me, the decision was one that was heavily contemplated and meditated on. Among others, the primary reasons were a deterioration of communication, disagreements on when, where and how we tour and a general break down of democracy within the group. Everyone should know that other than my family, making music is what I live for and will continue to create until I no longer can. I will never be able to thank you all enough for this life full of music that you have helped shape. I'm humbled by your support. I wish the best to Rob, Paul and Brian in their future endeavors and will always be thankful for the time we had together making music. I learned a tremendous amount from the guys and I know the albums will live on in the hearts of many, including my own. I intend to press on as a member of the group Rivers and Rust as well as my continued pursuit of production, songwriting and session work in Nashville. With love, Kyle
