Avenged Sevenfold haben bekannt gegeben, dass Schlagzeuger Arin Ilejay die Band verlassen hat. Die Band meinte in einem Statement dazu

“Hello Everyone –

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.

Arin kam nach dem Tod des Original Schlagzeugers The Rev in die Band, nachdem schon die Schlagzeuger Legende Mike Portnoy mit dem Post spekuliert hatte.
