What's up with all these people leaving bands lately?

Despite the band having just played Knotfest over the weekend, frontman Dez Fafara announced via the DevilDriver Facebook drummer John Boecklin and guitarist Jeff Kendrick have left the group without any drama. He also makes mention of the band going on a brief hiatus until he's all wrapped up with the Coal Chamber record, which we already knew.

"Hey everyone. What a blast Knotfest was. No better way to end the Winter Kills cycle. With the end of this cycle comes some other endings. John Boecklin, Jeff Kendrick and DevilDriver have parted ways. Nothing dramatic, no drag down fights, just time to move on. As I have said previously, DevilDriver is on hiatus while I re join Coal Chamber for a new record release and tour. DevilDriver will be back, make no mistake of that, in 2016 with a new record which we are already writing, tours around the world and the massive pits you have all gotten used to. All in DevilDriver wish John and Jeff the best."

I guess in the meantime between now and then the band certainly has time to think about who they want to replace Boecklin and Kendrick. Maybe it'll be some of the Coal Chamber members?

Who would you want to see in Devildriver?
