As Blood Runs Black guitarist quits band, goes solo

Dan Sugarman, lead guitarist of on-again, off-again California deathcore band As Blood Runs Black since 2010, has exited the group and formally launched his solo career. Sugarman will start by releasing a "collaboration album" funded via Patreon. He has issed the following statement:
First off, thanks to all the friends and fans I have met around the world throughout my years on the road - I wouldn't be able to still be here as a musician writing music and pursuing my dream without you guys. For that, I am eternally grateful. With that being said, I am formally announcing my departure from As Blood Runs Black. I wouldn't trade those experiences in for anything, but I am feeling called to pursue my solo career and future opportunities that allow me focus on where I want to be as a musician. And as some of my fans and friends know, my mom is currently fighting brain cancer, and I feel it's best that I put touring on the back burner for a while. Unexpectedly, all of this has charged me creatively, and being home has also allowed me to release my debut instrumental album "Centersun", as well as give guitar lessons and pursue music production full time. All of this brings us to where I'm at currently - I am extremely happy to announce that I will be rolling out a kickass collaboration album through Patreon with some of my favorite friends and musicians in the game. These are players that you either know and love, or will come to admire as much as I do. So far some of the straight cold killers I have lined up are: - Alex Lopez (Drummer of Suicide Silence) - Gil Sharone (Drummer of Marilyn Manson/Team Sleep/Puscifer/Stolen Babies/ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan/+44), - Danny Leal (Vocalist of Upon A Burning Body), - Angel Vivaldi (Virtuoso Guitarist), - Anna Sentina (Badass Bassist), - Ricky Armellino (Vocalist of This or The Apocalypse) - Sims Cashion (Child Prodigy Guitarist) - Alex Hofmann (Vocalist of Fallujah) - James Norbert Ivanyi (Australian Guitar Lord) And more to be announced in the near future... I will be unveiling this project through patreon.com/dansugarman and will be releasing an awesome track with one different collaborator every time, along with tons of exclusive content. I will also be pledging 10% of proceeds from each month towards a Charity chosen by my Patreon family and I. Being able to physically affect the people and world around me through music is something I've always dreamt of doing, and with your support, I think you guys could help me bring this idea to life. I've been searching for a platform that could provide all these combined services, and I believe I finally found the answer. In closing, I just want to once again thank everyone who has support me throughout the years. If you have a few minutes, I urge you to go to my Patreon page and check it out! Much sweetness is to come in the future… keep your facial orifices at the ready!

Good on him, he's way too talented to be held back by no hopers and homosexuals

What's with all the footage making it seem like any cares about As Blood Runs Black? They played a home show not long ago to about 12 people at a bar where they had to borrow some other bands entire stage rig. Sad.

At this moment, he's raised enough money to afford a 6 pack of PBR tallboy's.

It's sort of fun to think about a guitarist quitting by playing a solo and walking away for miles while still shredding. Better than this story 420

I played a show years ago with As Blood Runs Black and they were all douche buckets. They thought they were bad ass rock stars. The majority of the crowd left before they played. fck those guys.
