North Korea guitarist quits band

North Korea, featuring Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Billy Rymer, has announced the departure of guitar player Brian Byrne. Byrne has issued the following statement:
"After a lot of careful consideration, I've decided to bow out of North Korea and pursue other interests, musical and otherwise. This was a tough decision to come to as Mike, Bill, and Ryan are three of the most talented musicians anyone could hope to play with, but we're simply on different pages as far as our musical directions go. Thank you for your support and dedication to our band these past two years and please continue to support North Korea as they'll be releasing a fucking bad ass album on Triple Crown Records at some point in the near future. If you'd like to stay in touch I have a twitter (/brianbyrneinc), tumblr (thehandthatwieldsit.tumblr.com), and I'll answer whatever facebook messages that get thrown at me."
