Matt Wilcock, guitarist of Akercocke, has issued the following update regarding his departure from the band:

"After 5 years with Ak, and a lot of good times, its now time for me to move on. Musically, im differing a bit with the natural path that akercocke’s taking, so it’s best for me to part ways now. Theres no shit between anyone, and im thoroughly looking forward to going out with a bang, (or blast) on these last 4 shows. Full respect to the guys, especially Jason and Dave. Ill be continuing to work with Dave on The Antichrist Imperium which will be up and running very soon. Also much respect to everyone ive met on the road and at shows etc…
Death metal!"

I saw Akercocke in 2004 before he joined the band, so I'm kinda disappointed to not see this lineup live. I thought Akercocke put on one of the best shows I've ever seen... and they did it in a small venue with not too many people there.
