Alright, everybody. This is really starting to get out of hand now. First, it was Austin Carlile leaving Of Mice & Men. Then, Sean Heenan of Attila and Josh Balz of Motionless In White decided to leave their respective bands. Now, Memphis May Fire has just announced the departure of longtime rhythm guitarist Anthony Sepe.
“We’d like to let you know that after heavy consideration,” shared the metalcore outfit on their Facebook page, “it’s come time for Memphis May Fire & guitarist Anthony Sepe to part ways. Although change is never easy, it was determined to be best at this time & we have no doubt that Anthony will continue on in his creative endeavors. We’d like to thank him for everything he gave to this band & encourage you all to follow him on his various social accounts moving forward. We’ll have further touring updates coming soon; but in the meantime, please everyone send Anthony your warmest regards. He’ll always be family.”
As for a note from Sepe himself, he took to Instagram saying:
For those curious about who may be filling Sepe’s shoes moving forward, Memphis May Fire has yet to reveal a replacement. Until they do so, stay tuned for more news and make sure to pick up the band’s latest LP This Light I Hold here.
