Avenged Sevenfold

In a surprise post on their website, Californian Metal band, Avenged Sevenfold have decided to part ways with their drummer, Arin Ilejay.

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.

With Love –
Matt, Zack, Brian, Johnny

Ilejay had joined the band as an official member in 2013, following two years as a touring member of the band. He is also the former drummer of American metalcore band Confide.
