Unfortunately, this appears that guitarist Lucas D’Angelo is leaving the Betraying The Martyrs line-up. Here’s what the band had to say of this departure and the new replacement filling his shoes:
Dear BTM fans, as some of you may have guessed by now, Lucas has decided to part ways with BTM. There’s absolutely no hard feelings between us and we’ll stay best friends forever, but he made clear he wants to explore different directions, styles of music and focus on music production, and we all wish him the very best success doing so!
That being said, we’d like you to welcome our new guitarist Steeves Hostin with open arms, who will be replacing Lucas and joining the band permanently!
As you can already hear on the cover we just put out, Steeves is a mind-blowing guitarist but also a very talented sound-engineer as well as a long-time close friend! We hope you’ll welcome him nicely, show him the love he deserves, and will come meet him at our shows during the upcoming incredible festivals and tours we have planned for 2018 and 2019!”
