Bring Me The Horizon issued the following comment on Curtis Ward leaving the band from their myspace:
Hey, so you may of heard, and the rumors are true. Curtis Ward is no longer a member of bring me the horizon. This decision has been a long time coming, and although everything can look fine from the outside, theres been a problem for a long time. Over the last year especially, our touring schedule has been crazy, we are hardly ever at home, and for curtis, this proved very hard.
we could see that curtis wasn’t enjoying this band like the other 4 of us were anymore. It was nothing personal it was a decision that wasn’t made lightly, but one that we believe is best for the band’s future and for curtis’s life. we wish curtis all the best in whatever he chooses to do in the future. but no one fear! the band will not be splitting up, this is something that we did to prevent the band from splitting up.
we will still be doing all our future tours, currently finishing up taste of chaos with our good friend and guitar tech dean, who also looks abit like donkey kong.
