Defeater part ways with guitarist Jay Maas

Bummer of a story for fans of Massachusetts-based hardcore five-piece Defeater. Seems they’re now going to be a Massachusetts-based four-piece, as they recently announced that they’ve parted ways with guitarist Jay Maas (pictured above at right). Here’s the band’s brief statement:

Over the weekend it was decided to move forward as a band without the participation of Jay Maas due to personal & creative differences. All scheduled Defeater shows and tours will go on as planned and we wish Jay luck in his future endeavors. Thank you

Defeater’s latest album, “Abandoned,” was released August 28th via the band’s new label home, Epitaph Records, and serves as the follow-up to their last Bridge Nine Records full-length, “Letters Home.”
