Hatebreed guitarist leaves band

Hatebreed guitar player Sean Martin, who has played with the group for nearly ten years, has left the band. Martin will be replaced by original Hatebreed guitarist Wayne Lozinak. Frontman Jamey Jasta comments: "I speak on behalf of all of us and we support Sean's decision to leave and want him to be happy and successful at everything he does. There are no bad feelings at all and you'll probably see him hanging on stage at some of our local shows. We're family and he will be missed but Hatebreed will forge on." Meanwhile, Martin had the following to say: "After 10 years, I've decided to leave Hatebreed. This in no way reflects my personal relationship with Jamey, Chris, Matt and Frank; they're four of my closest friends and I'll always love them with all my heart. I want to thank all of the fans as well as the guys in the band and crew, past and present, for giving me some of the best times of my life."
