STS9 Lighting Director Saxton Waller will be leaving the group to pursue new creative opportunities. A Facebook post confirmed the news.

“Some of us have known Saxton since we were kids in elementary school. We grew up going to shows and playing music together,” the announcement said. “Saxton has been lighting the way from front of house for us for many amazing years. We will all miss him out on the road with us, but his legacy and work with STS9 will live on.”

STS9’s tour will continue January 27 at ACL Live in Austin, TX.
