While Dustin Kensrue was pretty disappointed that his church was blamed for breaking up his long-running band, Thrice, a recent article posted by the church might give some insight into what actually might have happened. In the article, which discusses his move to Seattle, Kensrue talks about what motivated him to change careers and focus on worship and Christian music:

This seemed strange at first, since I don't actually listen to any worship music and have never been very much of fan of most the music sung in churches. But God slowly began to show me that he had specifically gifted and uniquely trained me to enter into this fray and fight to make a difference.
From the beginning we had been ready to do whatever the Lord called us to, and now that it was clear, we started packing up and put our house on the market. God faithfully has provided a buyer for our home and a great new home to lease in Bellevue.
