US all-girl band CHERRI BOMB announced yesterday that they had parted company with singer/lead guitarist Julia Pierce.


Pierce (far left in the above picture) founded the band, managed by former Hole/Motley Crue drummer Samantha Maloney, in 2008. The band's debut studio album, 'This Is The End Of Control' was released in May 2012 by Hollywood Records.


Here's the official Cherri Bomb announcement:


Sometimes, things don’t end up the way we planned or hoped for. We are sorry to inform our fans and friends that Cherri Bomb has parted ways with Julia. Although this decision was extremely difficult, it gives us all the chance to seek out our individual creative paths.


We are thankful for the five years we have shared with Julia onstage and off and wish nothing but success to her in whatever road she chooses. The details of her departure are between us and Julia, please respect both her and Cherri Bomb with this difficult development and we hope you will be supportive and understanding to all of us.


It is not the first time that we have had to overcome adversity and probably will not be the last but we will always figure out a way to keep going and keep pushing forward. Most importantly, we will never change the passion we have for this band and the gratitude we have for the people we have met on this journey.


We have so many exciting things on the horizon and in development; writing new material, rehearsing a killer live show and putting the pieces back together. We will be playing with some temporary guest guitar players, some girls and some boys until we find the right fit for Cherri Bomb.


We want you to know that we love all of you and want to thank you for your support and being the best Bomb Squad ever.


nia, miranda & Rena
