Turnstile guitarist Brady Ebert leaves the band
American punk band Turnstile have announced the departure of guitarist and co-founder Brady Ebert.
The band announced Ebert’s exit on Saturday, August 13, in an Instagram story, although no further details have yet been provided.
“Turnstile and guitarist Brady Ebert are parting ways,” read the band’s post. “We are deeply grateful for the time we spent together. Our love for him continues and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward.
Ebert co-founded Turnstile with vocalist Brendan Yates in 2010, alongside guitarist Sean Cullen, bassist Franz Lyons and drummer Daniel Fang. He’s featured on all three of the band’s studio albums, including last year’s huge hit glow onwhich topped the US Hard Rock charts.
Ebert made his final public appearances with Turnstile earlier in March, when the band performed for a recording for Jimmy Kimmel Live!. They performed four songs: Mystery, Blackout, Don’t Play, and Holiday.
Goat reported that Turnstile drummer Daniel Fang filed a temporary peace order against Ebert on August 4 that “would restrain Ebert from abusing, contacting, or coming near Fang’s home or employment.” The order, however, was reportedly overturned on August 11 due to a lack of evidence.
Meanwhile, Greg Cerwonka of be offended replaced Ebert for the majority of Turnstile dates in 2022, including high profile show gigs at the US Coachella and Lollapalooza festivals.
At this time, officials have not clarified whether Cerwonka will be a permanent addition to the band, though that will likely be ironed out before the band embarks on its fall 2022 North American tour later this year.
