SKINLAB - Parts Ways With Guitarist GLEN TELFORD... Again
San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans SKINLAB have once again parted ways with guitarist Glen "Glenny" Telford. The group says in a statement, "As many may know, we started jamming again two years ago and announced his return to the band. We all knew that it was something we were going to take day by day and just write the next [SKINLAB] album and have a good time jamming. Now that the album is done and the touring schedule is starting to fill, SKINLAB is planning on having a full tour schedule, which we are planning on heading over to Europe, Australia, and even South America. Unfortunately, Glenny is unable to commit himself to this type of touring schedule, so he has decided to bow out before things get too crazy. |
"While it may come as news to some, it is something that we've known might be a reality eventually, and figured we'd deal with it when the time comes, and unfortunately, that time has come. So, with all respect, we wish Glenny all the luck in the world, as we are all good buds with no harsh feelings.
"As for his replacement, we are currently jamming with a sick new guitarist
from the Bay Area who has been a SKINLAB fan forever. We'll keep everyone posted as we begin crushing out some rehearsals this week for the DEATH ANGEL show [on August 29 in Oakland]."
Telford added in a statement: "Unfortunately, due to tough times, I have decided to leave SKINLAB again. It's either 100% to do that kinda schedule and commitment or none! And rather than give less than my all, I decided to sit it out!
"I'm stoked to have seen you all over the years and super-stoked on the new album, 'The Scars Between Us'. I'm sure y'all will be seeing SKINLAB killing it again out there in the universe!"
