Jeff Loomis And Van Williams Leave Nevermore

A few weeks ago, Nevermore announced that they were dropping off the Symphony X tour (Soilwork had already dropped off about a month or so ago). Well, the reason for that departure has just come out: guitarist Jeff Loomis and drummer Van Williams have left the band. Check after the jump for a statement from the both of them.

“In a mutual decision Jeff Loomis and Van Williams have decided to leave Nevermore. The time has come to pursue our own paths from the group. Due to internal struggles and ongoing issues within the band, we feel it is our time to move on. We would like to thank all of our fans around the world for their years of love, support and enthusiasm. This was not an easy decision but a very necessary one at this point, may we all meet again someday, somewhere in time.”
