UPDATE: Just a day after Jeff Hatrix announced his departure from Mushroomhead, guitarist Tommy Church has revealed he's also leaving the band. He released a statement last night (Mar. 8) saying "It is with a heavy heart tonight I announce that I have left Mushroomhead. I will miss all the crazy, loyal and most amazing fans and family I have made over the years and you will always have a special place in my heart. I wish Mushroomhead well in turning the page to this new chapter of life. It was an amazing adventure!"
Jeff Hatrix, known as Jeffrey Nothing, the vocalist and co-founder of Mushroomhead, has announced his departure from the band. He released a statement saying his reasons for leaving are best "for me as an artist and musician as this juncture in my career." He went on to praise the music he made with the band as "a once-in-a-lifetime privilege."
At this time, he's not making any more comments regarding his departure. Instead, he asks the band's fans to remain loyal to the band during this transitional statement. Shortly after Hatrix's departure, the band released a video titled "Thanxx for Nothing" where they tease a new vocalist. Watch the video above.
Hatrix co-founded the band in 1993 with Steve "Skinny" Felton. Since their formation, they've released eight albums. Their most recent is 2014's The Righteous & the Butterfly. In 2015, vocalist Waylon Reavis left the band citing irreconcilable differences for his departure.
Mushroomhead announced a tour with Vyces, Gabriel and the Apocalypse, VentanA, Align the Tide, and Blood Sun just last month. The band assures fans that all the shows and the tour will continue as planned.
