In other Reel Big Fish news, the band has just announced that longtime member Scott Klopfenstein has decided to retire from the band to spend more time with his family. Here’s “the skinny” direct from the Fish’s mouth:

“We hope you all have had a relaxing break from school & work and had time to spend with family and friends during the holiday season!

We have some bittersweet news to officially announce that some have already known or figured out regarding Scott Klopfenstein, trumpet player and background vocalist of Reel Big Fish. He and his wife are expecting their first child and he has decided to retire from touring to dedicate his life to raising a family. Out of respect, to allow a solid decision we felt it was best to hold off on sharing the news until Scott was ready to give a full statement.”

Please read his announcement on www.reel-big-fish.com. We all wish him and his family happiness and continued success.

As for the rest of Reel Big Fish, we will continue to tour the world and hope to see you at the shows in 2011 and beyond.
