Dieser ließ es sich natürlich nicht nehmen, in einem Statement dazu Stellung zu nehmen:
"I have officially quit EVERY TIME I DIE due to personal conflicts. I feel like I'm getting myself out of an uncomfortable, unhealthy situation, and it's for the best for everyone, and im ready to move on with my life. I still plan to play and be involved in music and am looking for a new project to pursue. This is a new exciting chapter in my life and hope anyone who has enjoyed me as a person/drummer in this band for the last 11 years sticks with me for whatever endeavor the future brings me."
