Be Your Own Pet lose member

College calls for the Austin quartet

Be Your Own Pet drummer Jamin Orrall has left the group, less than a week after their Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds performances.

Orrall is leaving the Nashville band in order to focus on his own record label Infinity Cat and his band Jeff, formed with his brother Jake. The drummer is also keen to attend college.
