In a recent interview with Hayley Leggs at Hellfest 2018, Eyehategod vocalist Mike Williams stated that guitarist Brian Patton has left the band to focus on his family – specifically a newborn child. This is, of course, completely understandable and we wish the best to all parties moving forward.

“We’re a four-piece band now. Brian, our other guitar player, he quit, because he has a new baby. He has two kids now and he’s taking care of his wife’s parents. They’re having some health issues, I believe. So it’s for a good cause but he couldn’t tour with us anymore. But it’s fun being a four-piece. I like the sound and the vibe and everything. So it’s kind of like a new era for the band.”
