Barham took to Twitter earlier today to give a proper statement on his departure.

“As you may have heard, myself and Sleeping With Sirens are parting ways. It’s been a fun ten years and I’m proud of every moment. To all my fans, family, and friends thank you for the support and I’ll be seeing you soon in my next venture!”

The band released a statement themselves yesterday which you can see below.

“Gabe will no longer be a part of Sleeping With Sirens,” the statement begins.

“We all love him, and we’ve created amazing music together, but in the last year or so, we’ve been growing in different places musically. There are absolutely no hard feelings, and we wish Gabe success in all of his future endeavors.”
