Vocalist Henry Derek Bonner has quit Scar The Martyr, the band recently formed by ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison. Bonner has released the following statement to Blabbermouth:
"I'm officially parting ways with Scar The Martyr due to personal differences, artistic direction and a slew of business decisions that I cannot simply ignore. I've given it a year of my life and now it's time to move on. Many thanks to all of the fans and friends that have shown their support. Furthermore, I will continue making music in many forms as well as pursuing a new band with King (God Seed) and Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle). My very best wishes to Scar The Martyr and their future success."UPDATE: Scar The Martyr has now issued a statement indicating that Bonner did not quit, but was in fact dismissed. Here's what they had to say:
"To address the recent Scar The Martyr news out there and make sure all the facts are straight, Scar The Martyr has parted ways with Henry, not the other way around. With all that's been going on of late we have been forced to take a very careful look at how we are moving forward and with there being some creative and personal differences it made sense to move on without Henry. "We have been very focused on new Scar The Martyr material and we couldn't be more excited with how the music is coming out. We are in the process of looking for a new singer and will have news on the search very soon. "We appreciate all the support from our fans and we can't wait to share the next phase of STM with all of you. We wish Henry best of luck going forward."
