The Case Of Fig
Amen frontman Casey Chaos recently spoke with Kerrang regarding the departure of guitarist Paul Fig, here's what he had to say:
"After six years of Paul and I being together in bands, he wanted to do his own thing and not really do tours, stuff like that. He thought I was too self destructive for my own good and he hated watching it happen. There's no bad vibes or anything like that. It's been a while coming. We had problems between him and Tumor."
At present, Amen are continuing their search for a new guitarist while working on their forthcoming new album for I AM/Virgin with producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot), which is set for a release early next year.
