Parts & Labor Seek New Drummer

After dazzling fans and critics with their latest full length, Mapmaker (Jagjaguwar, May 2007), and slaying audiences across the U.S. on their recent headlining tour, Parts & Labor bid a fond farewell to Chris Weingarten and issued an open letter to the world in search of a new drummer:

"After nearly three years of bashing, we're sad to report that our drummer, Christopher Weingarten, is leaving Parts & Labor. Chris is moving on to more rigorously pursue his work as a music editor and writer. He's the editor in chief at, and will soon be penning a book about Public Enemy's "It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back" for the esteemed Thirty Three And A Third book series."

The band is currently searching for a new drummer. They must be able to tour a minimum of four months out of the year, starting this fall with trips in the UK/Europe as well as the U.S.
