In the wake of the re-release of their latest album "Go", Vertical Horizon finds themselves without a drummer, as the band's long time drummer, Ed Toth has left the to join the classic rock band, The Doobie Brothers.  The band shouldn't have trouble finding a temporary replacement for their current tour, but the wake of this depature will be better seen when the band begins recording future records without the drummer they have had for the last 10 years.

Toth joined the band in 1996, when he and the band crossed paths in Chestnut Hill, MA.  According to the story, Toth was working at a Borders Books and Music Store there, and Vertical Horizon lead singer Matt Scannell's mom was in the store one day looking for a Vertical Horizon CD and Toth's boss assisted her.  As repayment, the band invited him to its show in Boston that night. Ed went along and was very impressed with the band's performance. After the show, he learned that they were looking for a new drummer. That week, he sent in a tape and secured an audition, the rest was history.

Vertical Horizon recently re-released their album "Go" on Hybrid Records.  The album was initially released on RCA Records in 2003, but due to poor promotion the album never really received any attention.  Vertical Horizon was released from RCA when the label merged with Sony Music last year, and the band quickly found a new home at Hybrid.  They recorded an additional song for the re-release of the album, and unofficially have dubbed the re-release version, "Go 2.0".

Below you can listen to the only new track on this re-release, entitled "Better When You're Not There"
