4 years after dumping drummer Mike Portnoy in favour of new blood, Avenged Sevenfold have announced they will be parting ways with Arin Ilejay.

The band released a statement today:

“We are writing this to inform you all that we will be moving forward without Arin Ilejay as our drummer. Arin has been nothing but a positive energy and monster drummer for us over the past four 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.”

A band in the magnitude of Avenged Sevenfold shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a replacement for Ilejay, we will keep you posted on any news regarding a new drummer!
