JTM Steps Down from Suspicious Minds
Alot of news this week to get out that we almost forgot the bomb drop that is Jordan Taylor Moed officially announcing his departure from the Heavy Swing Rock N Roll band, Suspicious Minds after 7 years. Jordan via social media announced the news while saying the following,
"What a hell of a ride, 7 years of amazing memories and music that I’ll cherish forever! We traveled the country, we wrote bangers and we made the impossible, possible! Thank you guys for sharing this idea of @besuspicious with me and taking it to the moon and back! Can’t wait to see what you guys do next! Till next time boys! 🤘🤙✌️"- Jordan via social media
News came to shock to fans and colleagues alike as the band had released their cover of the Misfits classic, Die Die, My Darling in October 2021 on Unable Records and had another single on the way. The bands last original release was 2020's, Cool Shades which was released on Rehegoo Music Group. Jordan had been the primary songwriter and the architect of the bands success. Jordan worked with Suspicious Minds on the debut album 2019's, Electric Elvis which included the radio rock smashes, Hampton Jig & Room Service. As well, he worked on 2019's live album, SMTV along side the slew of singles from 2018-2021. The band would only do one tour which was the 2019 Electric Elvis Tour and their most recent show which was scheduled this past October in Nashville was cancelled due to logistics and with the news of Jordan's departure, this makes us believe that there is more to this story that meets the eye.
The band had accepted Jordan's departure from the band and wish him nothing but success in the future and there is no current news on what the band will do in a post Jordan world of Suspicious Minds. But it seems the current band members will be moving on to other projects. So it seems for now fans of the band may have to stick to the released material until things change.
Til Next Time,
