Impaled Existence Splits With Guitarist Mikey Dykins

Guitarist Mikey Dykins of Impaled Existence has checked in with the following statement about parting ways with the band:

"After over 12 yrs and the founding member of Impaled Existence the time has finally come for me to part ways with the band. This has been a very difficult decision for me to make, unfortunately I have been finding my position in Impaled Existence stressful, I have had a lot of responsibility within the band and of late I have been finding it hard to manage with my family and work life.

"Impaled Existence have a busy schedule ahead for the next year and this has been the realisation for me that I just cannot commit enough of my time. I have seen the band come so far, from start-up as a Green Day/Metallica/Iron Maiden style cover band (And yes we were called Impaled Existence for that!) To today's modern progressive direction. It has been a blast on all fronts, as a band and as band mates we have been through so much and this time within Impaled will be remembered until the day I die with fond memories! I wish the guys Craig, Danny, Nathan and Andy all the best for the future, and I wait with ears open on what is coming our way.

"I look forward to honoring the next 3 shows Impaled existence have coming up, a big thanks to all who have supported Impaled Existence and to those who made it possible, the promoters, the sound engineers, family. As I take a back-step from the stage I will be moving forward at live shows to see these guys!"

Impaled Existence also comments: "We wanted to add our best wishes for Mikey and state that he will always be a part of the IMEX family. We have 3 remaining shows with Mike and want you all to come and show your appreciation for all the hard work he has put into IMEX, we certainly wouldn't have enjoyed the success we have without him.

"That being said, the cogs will not stop turning and as we speak, we are working hard on the album and we are massively excited with what the rest of 2013 will bring! More news on this and other things to follow in the coming weeks!"
