Bass player Carl from U.K. metal band Schemata Theory has issued the following announcement about leaving the group:
"Sad to announce that I have decided to part ways with the band. This band, in one form or another has been a massive part of my life for the last 10 years, however it is now time for me to move on.
"There is no one reason I can give for this decision, other than to cite changes in personal circumstances and differing opinions in the direction of the band. I can't say what this means for the future for Schemata Theory but I wish them the best of luck.
"Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 10 years from our beginnings as Down Within to our most recent release.
