Guitarist Emil Werstler has decided to quit Chimaira after three years with the band, issuing the following statement:
“My time in Chimaira has, unfortunately, come to an end. It is time for me to move on as I continue to focus on harvesting my abilities as a musician.
“I’m very fond of everyone in the band and wish them all the best in the future
Although this was a difficult choice to make, I feel it was necessary in order to take the next step in my career. The best is still yet to come and I’m very excited for the multiple projects I am working on.
I would like to thank the band, management, and, most importantly, all the fans for the endless support and understanding.”
