The Devil Wears Prada Split With Keyboardist James Baney

The Devil Wears Prada

Today has brought us bad news from The Devil Wears Prada camp. The band announced they have parted ways with longtime keyboardist James Baney.

According to Alternative Press, no specific reason was given for the sudden departure but TDWP did issue the following statement on their official Facebook page:

With great deliberation and difficulty, we have decided to part ways with our keyboardist James Baney. James will always be family to TDWP, being one of the most well-intentioned people we know. Our prayers to James in beginning a new chapter with his wife back home, and our endless gratitude to TDWP fans for understanding. We’ll see you at a show soon.

I interpret that as the decision being more of Baney’s than the metalcore group’s. Baney was part of TDWP since 2005 and it seems like life on the road has been wearing him out. Of course this is just speculation from me but I’m glad the split seems amicable.

The Devil Wears Prada released their fourth studio album, Dead Throne, in September. They are currently on tour in support of the record and will perform at The Intersection on March 10. Every Time I Die, LETLIVE and Oh, Sleeper will serve as openers. Tickets are still available at The Intersection box office and
