Curtis Ward Leaves Bring Me The Horizon

Bring Me The Horizon’s guitarist, Curtis Ward, has decided to leave the band. A press release issued this morning stated:

Currently in the US on the Taste Of Chaos, Curtis and the band have made the mutual decision to part ways based on personal differences, but remain firm friends as they have done since the band’s inception in Sheffield in 2004.


Personal differences? Interesting. I was JUST on the Taste of Chaos, and overheard that the only time the band spent together (aside from performing, duh) was when they had to do a signing for AP. Trouble in metal-paradise?

This won’t affect the rest of their stint on RTOC or any of the tour dates they have for the rest of this year. The band’s guitar technician Dean Rowbotham will be filling in. He’s a solid guy.

Maybe Curtis just decided to go pro playing Cee-Lo. Just kidding. I wish him well in whatever he does next!
