Rest Of Chimaira Quit Following Guitarist’s Departure

Yesterday, it was reported that guitarist, Emil Werstler, had quit Chimaira, and now, according to The PRP, the rest of the lineup has done the same. Guitarist, Matt Szlachta, keyboardist/vocalist, Sean Zatorsky, bassist, Jeremy Creamer and drummer Austin D’Amond are all out of the band, leaving vocalist, Mark Hunter the only remaining member.

Szlachta, Zatorsky, Creamer and D’Amond issued the following statement:

“In light of recent news, the rest of the band have decided to part ways with Chimaira. For us this was a great stepping stone, and an honor to play these songs live, and fulfill an incredible legacy. This was an an excellent platform to help continue playing music, when our collective bands either ended or went on a hiatus. Chimaira was an amazing experience and we look forward to future music endeavors with eachother.”

This is the second time, within a few years, that the band has undergone a drastic lineup change.
