Avenged Sevenfold are officially sans drummer and while it seems the split was amicable, dare we say it looks like Arin IIejay was dismissed for not meeting the bands exacting demands.
Here’s Avenged Sevenfold’s official statement:
“We are writing this to inform you all that we will be moving forward without Arin IIejay as our drummer. Arin has been nothing but a positive energy and monster drummer for us over the past 4 years. We love the guy and always will. We are and will always be grateful to him for helping us to move forward through some very dark times. Creatively though, we felt we needed to move in a different direction. While we can’t say more at this time, we are excited for the future and looking forward to sharing our plans soon with the greatest fans in the world. As always we appreciate your understanding and unwavering support.”
Anyone fancy being the drummer in one of the biggest bands in the world then?!
