Attack Attack! guitarist leaves band

Westerville, Ohio's Attack Attack! has announced the amicable departure of guitar player Johnny Franck. Here's the official word: "Well, it's that time of year again boys and girls. Johnny recently informed us that he will no longer continue being in the band with us. Now, before everyone freaks the hell out. I want to tell you that we respect Johnny to the fullest for the decision he made. There are no sides, no bad blood, and no hard feelings. We are still 5 best friends who have spent the last 3 years traveling the world, and doing extremely awesome things. "With that said, I will address what is next for Attack Attack!. We are going to continue touring, writing records, and generally being AA!. Caleb will take over doing the clean singing on records. Live, we're going to have a friend of ours filling in for the time being. We're not going to get another band member or try to 'replace' Johnny. It's just not necessary. Johnny's spot in our band will remain his spot forever. There's no replacing a friend or a band member like him. We wish Johnny well."
