Following news that drummer Shawn Drover has quit Megadeth comes word that guitarist Chris Broderick has also left the band.
“Due to artistic and musical differences, it is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Megadeth to pursue my own musical direction,” announced Broderick. “I want all of you to know how much I appreciate the amount that you the fans have accepted and respected me as a member of Megadeth for the last seven years, but it is time for me to move on.”
“I wish Dave and everyone in Megadeth all the best,” he added. “I am working on a few things of my own and hope that when they come out, you will all dig it.Until then, Chris.”
Broderick joined Megadeth in 2007 following the group’s split with Glen Drover, brother of drummer Shawn. He made his live debut with the band on February 4, 2008 in Finland.
The guitarist’s departure leaves Megadeth with mainman Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson as the group’s remaining members.
Megadeth are scheduled to begin work on the follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider” in the new year.
