Attila guitarist leaves band

Attila guitarist Nate Salameh has left the band, predominantly to remove himself from an environment that promotes drug and alcohol use. Salameh had the following to say:
"I'm making this post to inform everyone that the boys in Attila and I have decided to go our separate ways. I have no bad blood against the guys at all. It was apparent to the people who are close to me (including the guys in the band) that I wasn't happy. I couldn't keep lying to myself. It just took some recent events for me to realize it. I had recently decided to make a lifestyle change to clean myself of all drugs and alcohol and it is obvious that this was not the environment that I needed to be in to ensure that I live a clean, healthy and happy life. "I'm blessed to have made so many friends and I am truly appreciative all the life lessons that the road has taught me. I wish the best for Attila in all future endeavors. This is not the end of the road for me. This past year I have found a new passion for recording so I will be perusing this strongly. I love all you and thank you."
