Neuraxis Lose Guitarist Steven Henry

Neuraxis have announced the departure of guitarist and founding
member, Steven Henry. The move is the result of “personal and
musical differences,” though the band emphatically states that the
split is amicable. The group will continue as a 4-piece with
intentions to recruit a live session guitarist for their upcoming
tours. For his part, Henry has released the following
statement:

“After 13 years as guitarist and founder of Neuraxis, I decided to
take a different path. It’s simple, the flame of playing Neuraxis
is extinct, and gone are the motivation and taste for it. These
things happen, especially when I did not expect the band to go as
far as it has gone up to now, so it would be ridiculous for me to
slow Neuraxis down. I don’t want to be a burden, what I want is the
band to grow bigger and I don’t think I’m part of that equation. I
definitely need a break and Neuraxis cannot afford to lose its time
waiting for me. There are way too many good things ahead for the
band, and I do not worry at all that Neuraxis will do great without
me. I wish nothing but the best for the guys, and also that they’ll
find another talented and dedicated guitar player. I want to thank
the guys for their time, friendship and passion for music. I wish
them the best! As for me, I’ll keep going with my 3 projects: Urban
Aliens, Idiopathetics and Empathy Denied.”
