Jona Weinhofen Quits Bring Me The Horizon

Bring Me The Horizon 2012

This seemed out of nowhere to me given that the band was already releasing new music in 2013, but guitarist Jona Weinhofen quit Bring Me The Horizon this morning. He did the announcement on his Tumblr. I would summarize, but the full post is short enough for you to read for yourself:

After a lot of time and thought ive decided to leave my current position as guitarist with Bring Me The Horizon. things in the band have been very tense with a lot of disagreements between myself and certain members who i wont name.

im thankful for my time with BMTH and i have met many good friends and been able to travel the world more.

Im planning on moving back to Australia to pursue other musical ventures.

thanks

Jona

When we know what those other musical ventures are, we’ll be sure to tell you. It’s good to see someone step down in a time of tension rather than letting a band destroy itself. We’ve since gotten an update from another member of the band, which you can see after the break.

UPDATE: This Tumblr post does indeed seem to be from some time ago, but it has only been spreading waves in social media now. However, today Jordan Fish confirmed he was an active member of Bring Me The Horizon on keyboards in an unrelated measure.

    Updated to reflect that, thank you. No idea why no one else has reported this if it’s been that long.
