New gigs in a short period of time can be tough for Hangout as they have seen another musician call it quits. The hiring of two new singers recently was one ultimate test for the band that relies heavily on the fans to keep them alive. But last week their guitar player, Mackenson decided to leave with the intention to join another band. The band has had a tough time in recent months with the seemingly endless departure of its members and didn’t get a chance to make up for lost time with the new ones. His decision came couple of days before the band is scheduled to go on its Haiti Christmas tour.
