Guitarist Phil Sgrosso has announced his departure from Wovenwar, the band that succeeded their popular metalcore band As I Lay Dying after frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested and jailed. Sgrosso has posted the following statement regarding his departure from the band:
As some of you may have heard by now, I have decided to part ways with Wovenwar. Without getting into too many specifics, I have found myself more interested in pursuing other musical endeavors right now than devoting myself to the band.
Regarding the new album, I was fully involved with the writing and recording process just like any other album, as well as handling a larger portion of the producer duties and guitar engineering. I am proud to have this album as part of my discography and thankful to have had this time to push myself and explore new musical territory. I wish the band the best as they move on.
The rest of my year will be spent writing for several different projects as well as taking Poison Headache over to Europe for the first time with Ringworm and HIEROPHANT in Nov/Dec. Thanks to the fans for their support over the years—looking forward to seeing you out on the road soon
As he mentioned in the statement, he recently launched a new project called Poison Headache. They recently released their self-titled debut album.
