Cleveland, Ohio based metal outfit Chimaira has announced that bass player Jim LaMarca has decided to retire from his position in the band. Their message reads as follows:

"After a decade of good times and achievements, our friend and band mate Jim LaMarca has decided to retire from Chimaira. We wish him nothing but the best as he settles in and starts a family.

"As for seeking a replacement… we’ll cross that bridge down the line. In the meantime, consider it 'business as usual' with the Chimaira you know and love.

"Emil Werstler (Daath guitarist) will be handling the bass duties for the rest of the year, and we’ll see you on the road!"

While it's true this is not the best news, I don't think it will matter much when it's all said and done. Jim is a great bassist, but there's a lot of great bassists out there.
