Another shakeup with the German based boy band Us5, with Chris Watrin leaving the group after suffering from ‘burn-out-syndrome’ and losing a joy for music. Watrin said that he wants to continue with school and go to University in the near future. The move follows Mikel Johnson’s departure from the Lou Pearlman founded boy band last year, who was replaced by Vincent Tomas. At his parents’ demands, Richie Stringini also briefly left the group only to return a few months later.
A report from Punkt12 on the news, in German, at YouTube has since been removed.
