ARCH ENEMY has “amicably” parted ways with longtime guitarist Jeff Loomis.

ARCH ENEMY founder and chief songwriter Michael Amott commented, “It’s been a joy having Jeff play with ARCH ENEMY for close to a decade. We truly had a blast touring around the world together! We were friends long before we played music together, and we remain even closer buddies now, which feels great. We respect that he’s in a place and time in life where he needs to step out of ARCH ENEMY, and we all wish him nothing but the best moving forward.

“The only constant is change, and this is one of those moments where things had to change a little to move forward in a satisfactory way for everyone involved. With all that said, we are extremely pleased to announce that we have recruited Joey Concepcion as our new guitarist! Joey’s a phenomenal talent and has been a friend of the band for a long time; he even filled in for Jeff on a couple of European festival shows back in 2018.”
