Joe Payne praat over het verlaten van de band

      27 januari 2011

Bassist Joe Payne van Divine Heresy heeft volgend statement gereleaset over het verlaten van de band: "With a great amount of thought and consideration, I have decided to leave DIVINE HERESY to pursue my true passion (lead guitar) with my best friends in my band PAIN AFTER DEATH.

I've had a blast over the past four years playing with DIVINE HERESY and enjoying the laughs, blood, sweat, tears, and brotherhood that comes with being in a touring band.

It's become painfully clear to me that my passion for this project has been insufficient for quite sometime now. It's not fair to DIVINE HERESY fans, my fellow bandmembers in DIVINE HERESY, or to myself to continue on with this project an not wholeheartedly believe in what we were doing, musically or otherwise.

I wish nothing but prosperity and happiness to the other members of DIVINE HERESY and am eternally grateful to every single DIVINE HERESY fan around the world who have supported us the years and helped me pay my bills. This shit ain't over for me yet.

PAIN AFTER DEATH's full-length album will be complete and available very soon.. Go check that shit out and leave feedback. Good or bad. Bring it."
