Guitarist Jeff Pogan announced his departure from SUICIDAL TENDENCIES on Monday. He wrote in an Instagram post: "I have decided to leave SUICIDAL TENDENCIES for personal reasons. This means I will not be playing on any of the upcoming shows or tours. I wish the guys the best of luck and am grateful for all of the experiences I had with them."
Pogan had been the guitarist for SUICIDAL TENDENCIES since 2016. During his tenure with the band, he played on their most recent full-length studio album, 2016's "World Gone Mad", and the "Get Your Fight On!" EP, which came out in March.
Drummer Dave Lombardo recently said that SUICIDAL TENDENCIES will release a new full-length album, apparently titled "Still Cyco Punk After All These Years", in September.
