Announced today on the bands Facebook page Cherri Bomb has parted was with the founder and lead singer of the group, Julia Pierce. The reason was not said on the statement released by the band but the three remaining membersÂ Nia Lovelis,Â Miranda Miller andÂ Rena LovelisÂ will continue with the band.
The following is the statement released today on the bands Facebook page:
Sometimes, things donâ€™t end up the way we planned or hoped for. We are sorry to inform our fans and friends that Cherri Bomb has parted ways with Julia. Although this decision was extremely difficult, it gives us all the chance to seek out our individual creative paths.Â
We are thankful for the five years we have shared with Julia onstage and off and wish nothing but success to her in whatever road she chooses. The details of her departure are between us and Julia, please respect both her and Cherri Bomb with this difficult development and we hope you will be supportive and understanding to all of us.
It is not the first time that we have had to overcome adversity and probably will not be the last but we will always figure out a way to keep going and keep pushing forward. Most importantly, we will never change the passion we have for this band and the gratitude we have for the people we have met on this journey.
We have so many exciting things on the horizon and in development; writing new material, rehearsing a killer live show and putting the pieces back together. We will be playing with some temporary guest guitar players, some girls and some boys until we find the right fit for Cherri Bomb.
We want you to know that we love all of you and want to thank you for your support and being the best Bomb Squad ever.
nia, miranda & Rena

Julia Pierce formed the band in 2008 at the age 11Â out of wanting to start an all-girl rock band upon moving to California. Putting flyers throughout Los Angeles and searching online, Pierce found drummer Nia Lovelis and guitarist Miranda Miller. Still needing a bassist, Lovelis’s sister, Rena Lovelis, decided to join the band as well after learning to play bass. The band released their first studio album, “This Is The End Of Control” in April of 2012 and been touring the summer with the Vans Warped Tour and LostProphets. Below you can see an interview we did with the band in August before they played the Roxy.
