A couple of hours ago The Used posted a Facebook status announcing that their guitarist, Quinn Allman, is going on a year hiatus from the band. They did not specify his reasons for leaving, but it definitely sounds like they have no intention of making it permanent. You can read what they had to say below.
While Allman is away, Saosin‘s guitarist Justin Shekoski will fill in. The band is set to head out on tour in just a few days, so he will be tagging along with them.
We are saddened to announce that Quinn will be taking a temporary hiatus from the band for the next year.
Quinn is a vital part of the group and ee wish him the best in his upcoming endeavors and look forward to the day he rejoins us on the road.
We are thrilled, however, to share that Justin Shekoski of Saosin will be filling in for Quinn as we hit the road this year! Justin has been a close friend to all of us for many years and will help make this tour a memorable one!
