As we reported last week, Quicksand recently played as a trio while guitarist Tom Capone was absent from the show. Arizona court records showed that Capone had been arrested for shoplifting. The band has now stated that Capone will be taking an indefinite hiatus from the band, who will continue as a three-piece. The band stated: "As some of you have noticed, we played our show this past Tuesday in Phoenix as a 3 piece. When we began working on new music in the Fall of 2016, Tom wasn’t in a good place health wise. We wrote and recorded Interiors with the three of us. Flash forward to the Summer of 2017, the record was done and we were planning it’s release and the corresponding tours. Tom was in a much better place, and the four of us began rehearsing for the forthcoming tour. We were happy to be playing with him again and looked forward to the future. After a week of some amazing shows, the road has proved to be a difficult environment for Tom who’s headed home to work on his health. We wish him all the best, and thank you all for your continued support. -Alan, Sergio, Walter"
