Well, these dudes are getting older, getting married, having children, they gotta have a real income. Emery just isn't cutting it anymore
Also, the new album is supposedly their "heaviest" yet, meaning they likely aren't headed for the mainstream even though they could totally pull it off.
fuckin sucks though, he was my favorite singer in the band, the songs he sang in were always my favorite (Playing with fire, Edge of the World, Nickel Slick, etc.) Dude has such a solid voice, hope he continues to create
I just have a feeling this is going to Emery's last album, and that thought seriously bums me out
