Chimaira Parts Ways With Bassist

Posted by on November 22, 2010

Just four months ago, Chimaira revealed that they were parting ways with Ferret Music and searching for a new label home. Now it looks like they’ll be looking for more than just a label next year.

Chimaira has revealed this morning that bassist Jim LaMarca has left the band. Daath guitarist Emil Werstler will be filling in during the band’s upcoming Blue Collar Brawler Tour with Impending Doom, Daath and This Or The Apocalypse.

The band released the following statement:

“After a decade of good times and achievements, our friend and band mate Jim LaMarca [bass] has decided to retire from Chimaira. We wish him nothing but the best as he settles in and starts a family. As for seeking a replacement… we’ll cross that bridge down the line. In the meantime, consider it ‘business as usual’ with the Chimaira you know and love.”

We will keep you updated when more is revealed.
