CARNIFEX Part Ways With Lead Guitarist Jordan Lockrey

In their first lineup change in eight years, blackened deathcore act Carnifex have announced the departure of lead guitarist Jordan Lockrey. No reason for the departure was given, however the split seems to be very amicable.

The full announcement reads:

“CARNIFEX have announced that after 8 years, lead guitarist Jordan Lockrey will be leaving the band.

CARNIFEX comments, “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.”

Jordan Lockrey states, “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. Unfortunately, my time in Carnifex has come to an end. I love the guys and wish them the best of luck on these upcoming tours!”
