Krewella drop their first single since splitting with Rain Man
Last month, the news broke that Rain Man – formerly one third of EDM powerhouse Krewella – had left the group, and was suing his former bandmates to the tune of $5 million. In the weeks since, sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf have kept more or less quiet about the future of the band, explaining only that the allegations made by Rain Man – real name Kris Trindl – were “false”. But today, they’ve come back firing.
This afternoon, the now-duo live streamed their first track since the split with Rain Man, tellingly titled Say Goodbye. It’s now available as a free download via their website – but don’t expect Deadmau5 to grab a copy.

There’s more – over the weekend, Krewella formally responded to Trindl’s lawsuit. In a 22 page court document, the pair allege that Rain Man was often too drunk to properly perform, that he threatened to sabotage live dates, missed 68 of Krewella’s 212 shows from January 2013 to June 2014 and that despite claiming to be the group’s producer, he only “wholly contributed” a single track to their album Get Wet.
The Yousaf sisters also allege that Trindl was not kicked out of the group as he claimed, but resigned of his own free will. Stream Say Goodbye and settle in to read the Yousaf sister’s full court document below.
