Bring Me The Horizon guitarist Curtis Ward has left the band amidst their current stint on Taste Of Chaos.

"Over the last year especially, our touring schedule has been crazy," explained the band. "We are hardly ever at home, and for Curtis, this proved very hard. We could see that Curtis wasn't enjoying this band like the other 4 of us were anymore. It was nothing personal; it was a decision that wasn't made lightly, but one that we believe is best for the band's future and for Curtis's life. We wish curtis all the best in whatever he chooses to do in the future."

Ward will be replaced by guitar tech and the Mirimar Disaster member Dean Rowbotham for the time being.
