Whitechapel drummer Ben Harclerode quits the band

Thursday, August 10, 2017 10:24 AM PT


Whitechapel drummer Ben Harclerode has officially confirmed his rumored departure from the group, whom he joined in 2011. Fielding questions regarding his status in the band via Twitter, Harcle had this to say:

"I'm not emotionally invested any longer so its not fair to myself, the band or the fans for me to continue... It was the hardest move I've ever made, but I was truly unhappy with WC and [it] needed to happen."

Ex-The Faceless drummer Chason Westmoreland will fill in for the time being.

Such a waste. They never fully used Ben to his potential. Everything after Exile has been exceptionally terrible.

Hahahaha didn't Chason just split on the faceless right before tour? Not the best choice to let him fill in. I smell a break up soon

Love how flagrant his departure is while most dudes in scenecore bands live in an echo chamber and won't admit the genre has stalled

dude is one of those original geeks (like most members of mid to late 00s 'core bands) who never played a sport and discovered the gym way later on after scene life was out. no credit and cross fit is for posers
