Well, here it is. The reason, I imagine, for the band’s recent cancellation of tour dates across North America; guitarist Jeff Loomis and drummer Van Williams are leaving Nevermore. Here’s what Loomis and Williams said in a joint statement:
"In a mutual decision, Jeff Loomis and Van Williams 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."
Both Loomis and Williams have been with Nevermore since 1995.
Anyone else see something like this coming? Any predictions on what’s next for these two fine fellows? For Nevermore? The comments section is yours...
