DevilDriver reiterated yesterday that they’ll be going on hiatus.

Yesterday, they also parted ways (read: shitcanned) two members — guitarist Jeff Kendrick and drummer John Boecklin.

I don’t know that they were shitcanned.

Maybe they walked away.

Not sure why they would, but…I could be wrong.

Kendrick himself has delivered the following statement on his future:

“Want to give a special shout out to my best friend and musical partner since I was 15 @johnboecklin we are both about to embark on our own journeys for now but I have never played with a finer musician in my entire life. I can tell you this: I have heard his new music and even I could not even conceive how fucking brilliant it is. This is next level shit that will completely blow all of you away.

“While I re-assess my next musical steps I am extremely excited to fulfill another dream of taking my company All Axess to the next level and cementing us in the music and entertainment business. There are a lot of things wrong with the music industry and many who are outside are clamoring for a solution. I personally feel that the solution must start from within, from an artists perspective and not saying that I have all the answers, but I am confident that our plan will help move things in a different direction.

“Again, utmost respect to all of you for being so accepting of my decision. Please welcome the newest members of DevilDriver with open arms-it is never easy for anyone to change band lineups. My heart is heavy today but I look towards the future and what it may bring.”
