Turnstile has announced that they are parting ways with guitarist Brady Ebert after 12 years together.
The team shared the news in an Instagram story, writing, “We are so grateful for our time together. Our love for him continues and we wish him nothing but the best for the future.”
Ebert has yet to comment on why he left the band, and no details of the circumstances have been released. However, he has not played with them in concerts recently, and has been replaced on tour by Take Offense’s Greg Cerwonka.
Ebert was one of the founders of the group, along with singer Brendan Yates. They started the band in 2010, and were joined by bassist Franz Lyons, drummer Daniel Fang, and guitarist Sean Cullen (who left in 2015 and was replaced by Pat McCrory).
He played on the band’s three studio albums: 2016’s ‘Nonstop Feeling’, 2018’s ‘Time & Space’ and 2021’s ‘Glow On’.
Glow On,” released by the Baltimore group last August, received five stars from NME in a review. Will Richards of NME praised the group for their “no-holds-barred approach to experimentation,” writing, “is This is an album that looks almost. any traditional categorization, and it’s all the more exciting for him.”
Speaking to NME about the record, Yates said: “We knew we wanted to do something different for this record in terms of the recording process, mainly because we wanted to make sure we weren’t too comfortable. Every record is an opportunity. It’s a great opportunity to grow.”
The band is currently on tour in North America, with scheduled appearances at Portugal’s Paredes de Coura festival and the UK’s All Points East festival next week. They recently played summer festivals Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, and were described by NME as “the live band of the summer”.
