Thomas Erak Leaves Chiodos to Focus on the Fall of Troy’s New Record


This time last year, it was difficult to not be excited for Chiodos’ new record, Devil. Craig had returned, and the addition of Thomas Erak seemed to ensure that the group’s forthcoming effort would likely be their most diverse outing to date. Unfortunately, this hope was never realized, as the band’s latest attempt found them revisiting familiar territory with mixed results.

Now, eight months removed from Devil, Thomas Erak has taken to social media to announce his departure from the Michigan-based outfit. In a series of tweets to fans, Erak explained that he would instead be focusing his time on The Fall of Troy’s new album and his home life. The guitarist also went on to say that Chiodos had already enlisted an “awesome replacement,” and would not be canceling any of their upcoming shows with We Came As Romans.

From all indications, Erak’s sudden parting seems amicable, and though this is probably a bummer for Chiodos diehards everywhere, it’s difficult to not be stoked for new TFOT. Let us know how you feel in the comments section below.
