“I just wanted to thank all of the DevilDriver fans around the world for their die-hard love and support for the past nine years.
“Yesterday, I decided to leave DevilDriver. It was the most difficult decision of my life but it is something that I needed to do for myself. I had the best times of my life hanging out with all of you guys, but it is time for me to move on.
