North Korea — the Long Island-based band that boasts Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Billy Rymer –is down a man.
The group has lost guitarist Brian Byrne.
Dude has skipped out on the band.
“After a lot of careful consideration, I’ve decided to bow out of North Korea and pursue other interests, musical and otherwise,” he says in a statement.
“This was a tough decision to come to as Mike, Bill, and Ryan are three of the most talented musicians anyone could hope to play with, but we’re simply on different pages as far as our musical directions go.
“Thank you for your support and dedication to our band these past two years and please continue to support North Korea as they’ll be releasing a fucking bad ass album on Triple Crown Records at some point in the near future.”
Presumably, the band’s on the lookout for a new guitarist. We’ll keep you posted.
