Phinehas and guitarist part ways
California Christian metalcore act Phinehas has announced the departure of guitar player Jason Combs. The band has issued the following statement:
"We come to you with heavy hearts to inform you that Jason will no longer be an active member of Phinehas. Out of respect for his privacy, we will keep the details internal; but know that this was one of the hardest decisions we've ever had to make in our lives. Jason is still our brother who we love very much. We are learning that love can be difficult and messy - sometimes families have to make incredibly hard decisions. "Please pray for all of us. We are still one, family. Jason will always be family to us - because family isn't about what you do but who you are. Finally, you are family to us. Over the years you've shown us how to be a faithful ministry. We will always be indebted to your love. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you."
