Guitarist Emil Werstler has decided to leave Chimaira after three years with the band.
Emil is best known for his gypsy jazz-infused guitar playing with Levi/Werstler and Dååth.
He issued the following statement:
“My time in Chimaira has, unfortunately, come to an end. It is time for me to move on as I continue to focus on harvesting my abilities as a musician.
“I’m very fond of everyone in the band and wish them all the best in the future.
“Although this was a difficult choice to make, I feel it was necessary in order to take the next step in my career. The best is still yet to come and I’m very excited for the multiple projects I am working on.
“I would like to thank the band, management, and, most importantly, all the fans for the endless support and understanding.”
