Power Theory Splits With Guitarist

Power Theory has officially parted ways with guitarist Nygil Hoch and the band issued the following statement about the situation:

"Our producer and friend Matt DiFabio (Single Bullet Theory/Pissing Razors) will be handling lead guitar duties for our show in Chicago next weekend.

"We will not embellish on the reasons behind the decision to let Nygil go, and we ask our friends and fans not to indulge in the mudslinging that has been initiated on Facebook by him since his termination. Actions speak louder than words do, and class and maturity usually speak much louder than lies. This was not a decision we wanted to make, but circumstances left no other choice.

"We will be setting up auditions for his replacement upon our return from Chicago, and we will still meet our deadline for the release of 'Driven By Fear' by the end of the summer. It will be worth the wait."
