Local band The Workshy has been featured in music festivals like 80/35 and Little Big Fest for the past two years, and has been working to release its first studio album. Originally, its release was scheduled to occur during a show at DG’s Taphouse this Friday. The band has since delayed the release after announcing the departure of drummer Evan Cokeley.
“It was really just a matter of creative differences and priorities,” said bassist Jiho Han.
The band enjoyed making music together with Cokeley and has wished him luck in the future.
Han will temporarily move over to drums for the bands’ upcoming shows, and guitarist Danny Kratzer has taken Han’s place on bass. Han said it has been an opportunity for the band to work with new material.
“It’s really been a breath of fresh air,” Han said. “We’ve been working with new material and the new lineup a lot, though we are looking for a new drummer.”
Han remained positive about the situation; the band will still perform alongside The Sun Company at DG’s Taphouse this Friday. He said the band is excited to show new original material, and some new cover songs as well.
