Sworn Enemy's Lorenzo Antonucci (guitars, vocals) has announced departure from the band after roughly a decade together.
Antonucci states: "After a decade of being in Sworn Enemy I've come to an extremely hard decision: parting ways with the band and longtime friend/partner Sal LoCoco (vocals). This band has allowed me the opportunity to see the world and provided many countless, good memories that I will never forget. Sworn Enemy has been my baby since the beginning in 2000 and I've put everything that I had into it, giving it my all. It took me a long time to think this through, but after a grueling 75 day tour in the states, I just lost it and had had enough. I will always love the band and will always be a part of Sworn Enemy, as well as try to write as much as I can for the band if they continue on without me.
"I will continue on with music and as some of you may have heard already, I have a new project with Chris Storey (ex-All Shall Perish) and another amazing shredder Sean Swafford. The band is called Smashface and I'm handling all the vocal duties. I also have a recording studio with my girlfriend (Lidija Lychee) and am also taking guitar lessons from Chris Storey, the man that got me shredding."
