Crown The Empire guitarist Benn Vogelman has left the band due to internal dynamic differences. He played on both of Crown The Empire’s full length albums: The Fallout (2012) and The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways (2014).

An official statement from the band, revealed exclusively to Alternative Press, can be read below.

In 2014, Crown The Empire won a Skully for Best Breakthrough Band at the APMAs. Most recently, the band re-released their Resistance: Rise of The Runaways album, which features new and previously unreleased tracks.

"Benn has chosen to leave Crown The Empire. While this might come as a shock to a lot of you, we as a band have known this was coming for quite some time. Every group has its internal dynamic, and for Benn, he eventually realized that he wanted to explore other opportunities outside of that.  Although we're sad to see him go, we wish him all the best"
