Memphis May Fire
and guitarist Ryan Bentley
, a founding member of the band, have apparently gone their separate ways. Though the Dallas, TX group has yet to address the matter, Bentley had the following to say late last night via Twitter: "I'm no longer in Memphis May Fire. Details later."
UPDATE: Memphis May Fire has issued the following statement:
"For those who may not know already, we recently decided to part ways with our guitarist, Ryan Bentley, and wish him nothing but the best. He's a talented individual and we have no doubt that he will be successful no matter where life leads him. With that said, we'd like all of you to give a warm welcome to our new guitarist Anthony Sepe (Formerly of Decoder). Follow his Twitter & get to know him (@Ant_Sepe). Be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook page, as we will continue to post studio updates and news about the progress of our new record. We can't thank all of you enough for the continuous support and for making The Hollow such a success! Last but not least, if you don't know already- we will be on all of Warped Tour 2012 and we hope to see each & every one of you there!"
