American metalcore band Woe, Is Me has announced the loss of three of their members; Michael Bohn (Screamed Vocals), Ben Ferris (Keyboard/Vocals) and Cory Ferris (Bass), due to differences within the band. The former members have released a statement regarding their departure from the band, which you can read below:
“It doesn’t come with any ease to announce, but the three of us have left Woe, is me.
Our differences were just too vast on so many levels: Musical, personal/moral, and professional/business.
It came to a point where we could either continue on the path they saw fit, or we could create our own path and find happiness in our own ways.
We have nothing but gratitude for all of the fans. Every handshake, high-five, hug, pat on the back, and kind word from you guys and gals means the absolute world to us.
When one door closes, another opens: and we can’t wait to see what’s on the other side of this new door.
Hope to see you on the road soon.
