Periphery has announced the departure of guitar player Alex Bois. Here you go: "We have some sad news to share. Alex Bois and Periphery have decided to part ways. This is truly a sad day for Periphery, because Alex has been with us since the beginning, and he is like a brother to us. We're going to do everything we can to make the most out of this unfortunate situation, and soldier on like we always have in the past when faced with setbacks. "In regards to all of our upcoming shows and tours, worry not! We will have special guest artists filling in for Alex, so our touring plans will not be changing whatsoever. "Throughout all of this, we really appreciate your support and understanding."

Lame. I like the band, but not super familiar with the personnel. Is this guy a crucial element of the writing process?
