Nephelium Splits With Guitarist James Sawyer

After releasing "Coils of Entropy" (reviewed here) at the beginning of 2012, Nephelium has issued the following statement on the departure of guitarist James Sawyer:

"We are sad to announce the departure of our brother and guitar player, James Sawyer as he has decided to part ways with Nephelium to further his studies in classical guitar and to pursue his degree in music. On behalf of the band, I like to take the liberty in saying that we all have taken from him and learned a thing or two on our journey working with such an intense creative musician."

James also states: “It is with regret that I will no longer be able to continue as guitarist for Nephelium as I am leaving to pursue other interests. I would like to thank all the other members of the band for the opportunity to be a part of Nephelium; it was an honor to work with such talented musicians.

"I would also like to thank all of the other bands I have shared the stage with as well as all the fans and everyone who has supported me in making my time with Nephelium a very memorable experience! Thanks a million for all your support! And to my brothers in Nephelium, I wish them the greatest of success, upward and onward to victory!"

Nephelium is currently writing and recording the follow up to "Coils of Entropy," with more details and new shows to be announced soon.
