Guitarist Jordan Lockrey leaves Carnifex

Posted by on January 12, 2020

Carnifex and guitarist Jordan Lockrey have parted ways after being together for 8 years. The decision seems to be amicable as both parties shared kind words.

“We want to wish Jordan Lockrey the best of everything as he departs Carnifex after eight years, three amazing records and countless tours. We will be forever thankful for the creativity and musical vision Jordan brought to Carnifex. Please wish him well.”

Lockrey provided a positive statement as well:

Unfortunately, it’s time to announce my departure from Carnifex. I want to thank the guys for seeing something in me and bringing me into the group. The last eight years have been absolutely insane. I never thought I’d have a chance to create and perform music on this level with such talented musicians. To say I’m going to miss it is an understatement. I love the guys and wish them the best of luck on their upcoming tours.
