Skeletonwitch frontman leaves tour

Skeletonwitch has announced that vocalist Chance Garnette has left the band's current tour with Amon Amarth to address "some serious personal matters." Here's the official word:
"Lately there have been a lot of rumors, speculation, and assumptions, regarding Skeletonwitch. We want to set the record straight. Unfortunately, Chance is unable to finish out the tour as he has some serious personal matters to attend to. We ask you to respect his and our privacy regarding these matters. This obviously left us with a very difficult decision to make and we've decided to finish out the tour as a 4-piece. We made the assumption that Skeletonwitch fans attending the shows would rather see 4 of us ripping through our songs, than a piece of paper on the door announcing our cancellation. If the first 2 shows were any indication, we assumed correctly. "You have our sincerest apologies for not being able to bring you the full show, and for canceling the stop in Albany. We thank everyone for their understanding and their support now and in the future. Please come out to the remaining shows for riffs, beers, and hi-fives with us. At the risk of sounding too sentimental, music is equally important, if not more so, during rough times as well as the good. "Skeletonwitch is not going anywhere. See you soon."
