Les problèmes de dos suite à des opérations le force à prendre une longue pause. C'est le batteur Charlie Engen (33 ans) qui fera la prochaine tournée et pour le moment, le groupe ne dit pas si Engen sera le batteur officiel du groupe à partir de maintenant.
Voici le message officiel de Jeremy Spencer :
"This decision has been weighing on me for months; and now the time has finally come. I started to play when I was six years old, and I feel fortunate that my body has provided me with several decades of doing what I love most: drumming. However, the rigorous physical wear and tear has got me to the point where I feel I can no longer deliver a performance that brings me satisfaction and joy. I feel the band deserves to get someone with the fire and energy, capable of delivering the performance that the fans deserve. Like you, I will be cheering them on to continue making great music as they tour the world and bring exciting shows to all our cherished fans."
