Guitarist Bart Vergaert Leaves Aborted

Aborted has announced that guitarist Bart Vergaert has decided to leave the band to start his own band. The band has left the following message on the official website:

IN LESS GOOD NEWS WE HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THAT GUITARIST BART DECIDED TO LEAVE THE BAND. BART WANTED TO START HIS OWN BAND AND WAS TIRED OF PLAYING THIS KIND OF MUSIC. AFTER BART DECIDED TO CALL IT QUITS WITH ABORTED HE ALSO DECIDED THAT HE DIDN'T WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BOOKED SHOWS. NOT EVEN THE SHOWS THIS WEEKEND, LEAVING US AND THE PROMOTORS WHO BOOKED US IN A VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION AS THOSE SHOWS WERE LESS THAN 4 DAYS AWAY AT TIME HE DECIDED TO LEAVE. WE, THE MEMBERS OF ABORTED, TALKED THINGS OVER AND DECIDED WE COULD NOT LET THE PROMOTORS AND THE FANS BE THE VICTIMS OF THIS. THEREFORE WE WILL PLAY THE UPCOMING SHOWS THIS WEEKEND, AS A QUARTET.

WE HOPE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND OUR SETLIST WILL BE SLIGHTLY ALTERED & SHORTENED, THIS IS A SITUATION BEYOND OUR CONTROLL YET WE STILL WANT TO SHOW UP ON THE SHOWS & GIVE IT THE BEST WE CAN SEEING THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE HOPE TO HAVE A LIVE REPLACEMENT READY BEFORE WE HEAD OUT TO THE US IN 13 DAYS.

AS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE BAND, WE REASSURE YOU THAT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, ...WE'LL BE GOING ON AS BEFORE. WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU CAN ONLY MAKE YOU STRONGER!!
BEST REGARDS.
ABORTED
