While Sleeping with Sirens’ frontman Kellin Quinn was in the midst of a Twitter fight with Oli Sykes from Bring Me the Horizon, it looks like guitarist Jesse Lawson had decided to leave the band.
The reason behind his departure is that he would like to spend more time with his family as well as work on some solo stuff during that time. For those not familiar, Quinn does write the lyrics for the songs, but Lawson is the one behind the music.
Lawson took to the band’s Twitter to reveal the news to fans. The message on the official Sleeping with Sirens account simply read, “From @jessesws instagram.com/p/fjBLlLEz38/.”
The link for those who clicked would lead them to the band’s official Instagram page where a letter was written in black with a simple white feather in the background; the cover art for their recently released album.
The letter on the social media site explained Lawson’s sudden departure from the band.
The band and I have decided to part ways. There are no hard feelings and no hate behind it. It’s time for me to focus on family and my next musical venture. The time spent with them has been a hell of a ride and one i’ll never forget. I love and cherish them all as brothers and hope for the very best as they continue on. Than you for your support.
As of now, there has been no comments on the matter from the remaining members of the band. Some fans are starting to wonder if they might go the route of an indefinite hiatus, but nothing is concrete and currently just speculation. In the meantime, they have asked Nick Martin, formerly of D.R.U.G.S. to fill in the void that Lawson has left.
