Here's the message issued by the band on their Official Facebook page:
"In the pursuit of our musical journey, we have realised that our paths have become different and it has become inevitable that we make this collective decision to let him relieve from the family and pursue his own journey."
"Rinoy has been with us since the formation of The Down Troddence and he has contributed highly to the band's growth."
"It's with a heavy heart that we have come to this decision. End of the day, art is more important than the artist. We wish him all the best in life."
"So we are on the lookout for a new permanent guitarist preferably someone who is prominently into Thrash/Groove Metal with a hint of Folk influence, settled or willing to settle in Bangalore."
