Guitarist Brian Patton Issues Statement On His Exit From Eyehategod

Brian Patton has officially commented on his departure from Eyehategod. You can read what he had to say below. As previously reported, the guitarist left to focus on his family.

Patton said the following:

“Touring and being away from my family started to get harder after my daughter was born. Then soon after the arrival of my son, I left for a six-week tour. While I was away, both kids had some serious health scares. Being away from my family while that happened, along with an increasingly busy tour schedule, I decided the best thing for me was to step down. To concrete this decision, after a visit with my wife’s parents earlier this year, it became clear that my in-laws’ health was rapidly fading and they needed our help. So my family and I have moved to Greensboro, North Carolina to care for them full time.

Trust me when I say that this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. After being in this band for twenty-five years — over half of my life — to say that I will miss it is a huge understatement. I already miss it. Ultimately, I want to be at home with my family. But more importantly, I am truly needed at home. I love my brothers in EYEHATEGOD, of course, and wish them nothing but the best. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and the music I have played throughout the years. I hope to see you all soon. I plan on playing again in some form or fashion. But for now, my family comes first.”

Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams Says Guitarist Brian Patton Quit To Focus On His Family

Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams was recently interviewed by Hayley Leggs at Hellfest in Clisson, France and addressed the absence of guitarist Brian Patton. According to Williams, Patton quit to focus on his family life.

Williams said the following:

“He quit, because he has a new baby. He has two kids now — he has a new baby — and he’s taking care of his wife’s parents; they’re having some health issues, I believe. So it’s for a good cause, but he couldn’t tour with us anymore. But it’s fun being a four-piece; I like the sound and the vibe and everything. So it’s kind of like a new era of the band.”

On another note, Williams also offered an update on the group’s new album:

“We were listening to the demo today on our drive here. We have a demo of, I think, maybe five or six songs. But I think we’re gonna re-record it. ‘Cause now we’re a four-piece band. And with my health thing over with, it’s kind of like a new era of the band.”

He went on to say it will “hopefully” be released in 2019:

“I don’t wanna say anything. We did that for 14 years — we kept going, ‘Oh, it’s coming out next year’ — and it took 14 years to put out a new record.”

He also added:

“We’re not one of those bands that tours, puts out an album, tours… We do it when we want to and when we feel… I mean, bands like that, sometimes they put out shitty albums ’cause they just write stuff very quickly. We just wanna take our time and write good songs.”

As far as the sound of the new material, he said:

“It’s the same EYEHATEGOD. We’re like AC/DC. It’s EYEHATEGOD; it’s gonna sound like EYEHATEGOD. Different riffs, different lyrics, but the sound is ours.”
