Nevermore - No More...Or At Least For These Dudes

Just woke up to some BUMMER news for Northwest metal. Today, it has been announced longtime Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis and drummer Van Williams have decided to leave the band. Things started to look shaky in the Nevermore camp when we first heard about them dropping from the upcoming Symphony X and Soilwork (who also dropped) tour, but I would never have guessed this.

Who knows if Nevermore will continue on, but if they're trying to replace the guitar wizardry of Loomis, they'll have to look far and wide. Now that Warrel Dane declared that there WILL be another Sanctuary record, will this be the end of Nevermore? Unfortunately, that is only "What Tomorrow Knows"...

Here's the official press release...

In a mutual decision Jeff Loomis and Van Williams (above, right) have decided to leave Nevermore. The time has come to pursue our own paths from the group. Due to internal struggles and ongoing issues within the band, we feel it is our time to move on. We would like to thank all of our fans around the world for their years of love, support and enthusiasm. This was not an easy decision but a very necessary one at this point, may we all meet again someday, somewhere in time.
