UPDATE 3/24/15: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros posted an update about Jade on their Facebook page, quelling rumors that they had kicked her out:
Their original post, which has since been edited, included a note about her needing to get help:
6/3/14: There was much cause for speculation after Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros’ front woman Jade Castrinos was absent from a concert in Atlanta, Georgia. The speculation was followed by a not-so-subtle Instagram post on the singer’s account.
The band posted a comment in response to Jade’s post, which has since been deleted.
Fans of the band and lovers of Jade’s presence are extremely saddened by the news, and even more angered by how the news has been broken.
Comments stating “a tour without Jade isn’t a tour” and “Jade is the girl of the hour” have since been posted on the band’s page in support of Castrino and her amazing talent. This is certainly upsetting, considering that Jade is such a celestial presence in the band. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of her.
