Bring Me The Horizon Guitarist Quits

Guitarist Curtis Ward has quit UK metallers Bring Me The Horizon in the middle of the US Taste Of Chaos tour.

According to the band's management company the band, which formed in Sheffield in 2004, "made the mutual decision to part ways based on personal differences, but remain firm friends."

All scheduled live dates, festivals and tours will continue with the band's guitar tech Dean Rowbotham standing in for Curtis.

Bring me the Horizon return to Europe this summer for festivals all over the continent, then head to Russia, Japan, Indonesia and Australasia, before touring the UK in October.
