Earlier today, The Devil Wears Prada announced that they were parting ways with keyboardist James Baney. The Christian metalcore group issued their own statement via Facebook:
“With great deliberation and difficulty, we have decided to part ways with our keyboardist James Baney. James will always be family to TDWP, being one of the most well-intentioned people we know. Our prayers to James in beginning a new chapter with his wife back home, and our endless gratitude to TDWP fans for understanding. We’ll see you at a show soon.”
While the statement is rather vague, Lambgoat clarified that Baney left to be with his wife and family. It’s currently unclear as to whether The Devil Wears Prada will have a new keyboardist in time for their tour with Every Time I Die or for Mayhem Fest. At the same time, it’s good to hear that Baney and the band parted on good terms.
