Chimaira bassist quits band

Chimaira has announced the departure of bass player Jim Lamarca. The group has issued the following statement: "After a decade of good times and achievements, our friend and band mate Jim LaMarca has decided to retire from Chimaira. We wish him nothing but the best as he settles in and starts a family. As for seeking a replacement...we'll cross that bridge down the line. In the meantime, consider it 'business as usual' with the Chimaira you know and love. "Emil Werstler [of Daath] will be handling the bass duties for the rest of the year, and we’ll see you on the road!"
