Beartooth guitarist Taylor Lumley announced via Twitter that he has left Beartooth.  He explains that the departure is due to a desire to focus more on his “life and art,” and is not in any way a result of bad blood between him and the band.

Lumley was one of the first members who joined the band, which was originally a solo side-project of former Attack Attack! frontman Caleb Shomo. After releasing the debut EP “Sick,” Shomo recruited Lumley along with bassist Nick Reed and drummer Brandon Mullins for live shows. Lumley was the last in this original line-up to leave the band, with Reed leaving back in 2014 and then Mullins in 2016.

On the bright side, the band says (in a tweet addressing Lumley’s departure) that new music is coming “ASAP.”

Be prepared for the follow-up to 2016’s “Aggressive.”
