Drummer Andrew Carlston has left Chelsea Grin. The split appears to be amicable. Carlston offered a tweet to announce his departure:
So i will no longer be playing with Chelsea Grin. It has been an amazing journey with the band and wish them the best!

No explanation from either side has been provided yet, but Lambgoat reports that Carlston recently had a daughter which could have something to do with his decision. The band's new EP Evolve is due out June 19 via Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie and they'll be on the Vans Warped Tour all summer long.
