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.
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.
@1jessicabarker no, I didn’t replace jona either, the two aren’t connected!

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
