Pro-Pain Parts Ways With Guitarist Tom Klimchuck

Pro-Pain's guitarist Tom Klimchuck has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band:

"Although thoroughly saddened by the realization that my time in Pro-Pain is at its end, I look back with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and pride. The band has been an absolute blessing to me.

"It has provided a platform with which to fight the good fight, and bring inspiration through commonality to people all around the world. All the while offering countless, magical experiences that most can only dream of.

"I owe a massive 'Thank you!' to Gary, Marshall, Ricky, and Adam, as well as all previous members, and crew past and present; my brothers. It has been a privilege sharing the stage, and sharing so many incredible times with you all. These are the fabric of our souls, and you are all irreversibly woven into mine.

"A very special 'Thank you.' goes out to all the Pro-Pain fans. It is a powerful thing to watch a large group of people, seemingly strangers to one another, find common ground, and even inspiration in something I have put my heart and soul into. This is the show you have given me as I've looked out from the stage to all of you, and the gift you have given me that I will have forever. I am eternally grateful."

This is kinda upsetting. I like Pro-Pain, and they've been playing with him since the beginning. Oh well. At least they've given us a lot of good material and hopefully they'll get a new guitarist that's just as good.

The Truth Hurts was one of the first metal albums I bought after a friend lent it to me. I wanna listen to Bad Blood now.
