San Diego, California-based extreme metal unit Carnifex have announced the departure of lead guitarist Jordan Lockrey, who officially joined the band in 2013.

We will be forever thankful for the creativity and musical vision Jordan brought to Carnifex. Please wish him well." Jordan Lockrey added: "I want to thank the guys for seeing something in me and bringing me into the group. The last eight years have been absolutely insane. I never thought I'd have a chance to create and perform music on this level with such talented musicians. Unfortunately, my time in Carnifex has come to an end. I love the guys and wish them the best of luck on these upcoming tours!" Guitarist Neal Tiemann (Devildriver) will be filling on the band's upcoming European tour with Thy Art Is Murder.
