Dave Pybus has left Cradle Of Filth due to "personal reasons", reports Digital-Noize. An official statement from the band reads as follows:
"We are sorry to say that as of yesterday (Thursday, January 20th), Dave Pybus is no longer with Cradle Of Filth. Dave has decided, for personal reasons that he is unable to continue with the band. This will not endanger the tour dates we currently have in place or future recording commitments, as a replacement will be found to complete these.
"We are all very sorry that Dave has made this decision and he will be missed."
