The group has issued the following statement:

Meanwhile, Sweeney had this to say:

"I can't believe I'm saying this, but with the largest stone in my throat and a leaden heart, I've decided to part ways with Loathe. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported me in this band and in music as it means everything to me. Without music i wouldn't be alive. Seriously.

"I am not dead musically as I have something I'm working on, that I will be putting what's left of my heart and soul into after what has been a harrowing ordeal this past year.

"I thought some things might have changed with time within the band but unfortunately in this case things continued to stay the same. So as to preserve my own well being and mental health I have decided to leave.

"Thank you to all who have ever been there in any and every way, It really really does mean more than I could ever describe. I WILL be back with new music and hopefully playing shows again once all is ready."

oh don't worry it's just some old guy that you should like and respect because he's old and because the hair metal scene likes him. If I wanted hair metal news I would go to blabber mouth. I'm not part of that generation and I don't give a flying shit about any of them.

Who are all these no name bands? Who listens to any of them? Why are you even posting this "news"? Hire someone competent to run your website because you are clearly not the one.

The picture of this guy looks like he was in a 90s action movie that took place in a dystopian future.

Bro what the f*ck happened to these comments… hair metal??? They're a modern metal band. More importantly who are the racist pieces of shit that can't even handle anyone outside of America making music?? What the f*ck? It's not even like they're speaking a different language either, they're from the U.K. What the f*ck is wrong with all of you?
