Sworn Enemy Guitarist Announces His Departure

Lorenzo Antonucci, guitarist and backing vocalist for New York City thrash outfit Sworn Enemy, has announced his decision to leave the band after nearly a decade of recording a and touring with the band, whose last album, ‘Total World Domination,’ was released back in June.

“After a decade of being in Sworn Enemy, I’ve come to an extremely hard decision: parting ways with the band and longtime friend and partner [Sworn Enemy vocalist] Sal LoCoco,” he says. “This band has allowed me the opportunity to see the world and provided many countless, good memories that I will never forget. Sworn Enemy has been my baby since the beginning in 2000 and I’ve put everything that I had into it, giving it my all. It took me a long time to think this through, but after a grueling 75 day tour in the states, I just lost it and had had enough. I will always love the band and will always be a part of Sworn Enemy, as well as try to write as much as I can for the band if they continue on without me.”

Antonucci says he doesn’t plan on leaving music altogether. In fact, he has a new band already in the works.

“I will continue on with music and as some of you may have heard already, I have a new project with Chris Storey,” formerly of All Shall Perish, he says, “and another amazing shredder Sean Swafford. The band is called Smashface and I’m handling all the vocal duties. I also have a recording studio with my girlfriend and am also taking guitar lessons from Chris Storey, the man that got me shredding.”

The band has yet to issue a statement on the situation.
