It has been announced that Chelsea Grin's guitarist, Dan Jones is taking a leave of absence from the band for the remainder of 2015. The reason is something quite respectable and impressive.
Dan will be spending a lot of his time in the genetics lab of Salt Lake City, Utah's Westminster College in the near future. He wishes to do research on microbial mercury methylation, but also says he will be making progress on the next Chelsea Grin album.
He is not quitting the band, just is exploring other options and will not be on tour with them because of it.
This announcement actually came on May 9, and Dan shared a paper he wrote in 2014 on Twitter, for anyone who is interested.
What do you think of this matter? Chelsea Grin may be one of the few bands out there that can say they have a scientist on their side, among other things.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
