We Have Left For Your Parents

Amen guitarist Rich Jones recently announced the departure of both drummer Shannon Larkin and guitarist Sonny Mayo from the band in light of their recent hard times. Jones commented about their decisions to exit saying:
"Basically this all boils down to money, and the fact that we have none. Larkin has to support his family and Godsmack allows him to do that. Sonny is concentrating on his day job for now. We wish those guys the best..."
The pair have been replaced by drummer Zach Hill of Hella who most recently handled the live drumming duties for Team Sleep and his brother Josh Hill on guitars. Despite the line-up changes the band will still be playing all of their previously confirmed upcoming dates.
