Since former drummer and founding member of Lamb Of God, Chris Adler, left the legendary band in July, fans have been on the receiving end of radio silence as for the reason for his departure. Now, Adler has broken his silence.
As reported by BLABBERMOUTH, Adler released a statement detailing his exit, saying that he “did not make the decision to leave (his) life work.”
“I feel it is time to address the many questions being asked about my departure from Lamb Of God,” he wrote.
“Allow me to start with a relative concept of understanding. We all gave our lives to this, 26 years is not flippant. Each one of us sacrificed and lost much on a personal level to live the dream we had when we were kids.”
“I will always love each member of the band for believing in me and agreeing to take on the world. We managed to find some love in the machine but in turn, it took things that cannot be recovered.”
“I did not leave the dream. I did not make the decision to leave my life’s work. The truth is that, I am I unwilling to paint by numbers.”
He then went on to say that there is no ill will towards his ex-bandmates.
“I wish my brothers all the best in their continued ventures. I can assure you that you will hear from me again. I was given a gift and hope to continue to share it.”
“I support my friends and the dream I allowed them to share in,” he continued, later.
“I loved and am still humbled by every second of the smiles and horns we elicited.”
