Loathe have announce they have parted ways with Connor Sweeney (Guitar).
Sweeney was one of the founding members of the band and has played on all of their recordings to date.
Loathe have released this short statement on their socials:
“Loathe regretfully announce the departure of Connor Sweeney. We would like to thank Connor for his contributions and commitment to Loathe over the years and wish him the best in his future endeavours.”
And Connor has released this much longer statement:
“Hello internet. Today I can’t believe I’m saying this, but with the largest stone in my throat and a leaden heart, I’ve decided to part ways with Loathe. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported me in this band and in music as it means everything to me. Without music i wouldn’t be alive. Seriously.
I am not dead musically as I have something I’m working on, that I will be putting what’s left of my heart and soul into after what has been a harrowing ordeal this past year.
I thought some things might have changed with time within the band but unfortunately in this case things continued to stay the same. So as to preserve my own well being and mental health I have decided to leave.
Thank you to all who have ever been there in any and every way, It really really does mean more than I could ever describe. I WILL be back with new music and hopefully playing shows again once all is ready.
A massive thank you to Ryan Richards for being the greatest manager and making my personal dreams a reality.
Another massive thank you to Zack McAdam, Lewis Chalmers and Josh Singh for always being such amazing people and crew to work with.
Thank you for reading.
