“I was hoping to have a little good news for TNT fans after a press release was prematurely leaked two weeks ago. Since that leak an attempt was made to put together an amazing farewell tour for the fans and we were hoping to announce that in this official release, but unfortunately the other members of the band turned the tour down.
"It is with a clear mind and a sad heart that I announce my final departure from TNT.
It's been an amazing 22 years and we have created some great music for thousands of faithful fans worldwide. This was a difficult decision, but change is not always a bad thing.
The reasons for me leaving are both personal and professional. It is simply time to open a new chapter in my life in a fresh environment. I wish my former colleagues and friends of TNT all the best in their future endeavors both in life and in music.
To the fans I wish to express my deepest heartfelt gratitude for your many years of love and support and I look forward to share with you the fruits of my future music creations. I will ask the fans to try to focus on the music and the positive things we did together and will now do apart and ignore the rest. I am excited about the future. The work with my solo project is in full bloom and I can't wait to see you all on the road again."
Much Love, Tony
