Born of Osiris Part Ways With Guitarist

Sumerian Records

Born of Osiris have split with their guitarist Jason Richardson, who has been seen playing live with Chelsea Grin. Born of Osiris are seeking a replacement for Richardson, saying that the parting of ways was a necessary incident and that the band will be revitalized from the change.

Judging from what the band had to say about Richardson’s exit, they are excited about what’s next. They’re even in writing mode for another album and big touring plans will be announced imminently. Born of Osiris formed in Chicago, Ill. in 2003. Richardson joined the group in 2009 and played on their critically acclaimed ‘A Higher Place’ [2009] and ‘The Discovery’ [2011] albums.

The official statement on the matter is as follows:

“To all of our fans and followers, we have decided to part ways with guitarist Jason Richardson. This was something that just needed to happen. We will be a more creative, energized, and focused unit as a result. The past year was the band’s most successful and we owe it all to our amazing fans. We promise everyone that 2012 will see us take further steps to bringing every aspect of our band to a new level. We couldn’t possibly be more excited for what the future holds.

Also, since the finishing touches were put on ‘The Discovery’ we’ve already been in the process of writing our next album. The past month and next two we will be home writing and finalizing the record that will be released this summer/fall.

Big news coming soon regarding our summer touring schedule, we can’t wait to see all of you again soon with some new music to play for you!”

If you think you’ve got what it takes to strap on a guitar and fill Richardson’s former role, the band is temporarily accepting video submissions via
