BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Guitarrist John Kempainen hat die Band während ihrer US Tour mit MISERY INDEX und SOILENT GREEN sehr überraschend verlassen.
Dazu das Statement von Sänger Trevor Strnad:
"On the eve of our December tour with friends MISERY INDEX and SOILENT GREEN, we in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are faced with a heartbreaking dilemma: John [Kempainen; guitar] has abruptly left the fold and refuses to accompany us on the tour. We are left with no choice but to carry on with the dates as a four-piece. The remaining members of the band apologize for these unprofessional circumstances, but we feel that it is best to go through with the tour and not disappoint the other bands as well as the fans who are looking forward to these shows. Please come out and show some BLACK DAHLIA love in our hour of need."
