Audio Adrenaline have announced that the band and lead singer Kevin Max will be parting ways with immediate effect, after nearly two years together.
The shock development means that Josh Engler from Abandon will be joining the band as their new lead vocalist.
Bassist and founding member of Audio Adrenaline Will McGinniss says despite the split Max remains a "dear friend" who was "often misunderstood".
"The decision was very mutual and totally best for everyone," McGinniss said. "Transition is never fun but in faith both entities are going to walk in it."
The band have said they are "honoured" to have Josh Engler join the band for their next chapter.

Parachute has announced a new "mainstream-facing commercial entity" named SMOKE that will focus on artist management, creative & commercial services, and events.
It will also house Smoke Studios, a creative collective helping musicians make their art into a living by teaching them to develop commercial music and radio jingles.
In an email sent out to Parachute supporters, CEO Mark de Jong said "Smoke Studios is a great, practical way for us to help musicians make a living from their art".
The announcement of their latest endeavour comes two months after it was revealed that the annual Parachute Music Festival would be coming to an end.
De Jong also made it clear that Parachute Music will continue as a not-for-profit charity, with an emphasis on advocating for Christian musicians in the industry.
To top it all off, they've promised to keep us posted on the development of two concept tours planned for later this year, featuring a range of artists in their network.
Exciting times indeed for Parachute!
Hip-Hop artist Tedashii is back after a three-year hiatus with critically-acclaimed new album 'Below Paradise'.
The album explores the meaning of triumph and hope amidst a life filled with patterns of pain and loss, which Tedashii knows all too well after the loss of his son last year. The songs delves into the reality of suffering, deep and true joy, and the false expectations we carry. Below Paradise is filled with true authenticity and uncut honesty during this season of his life.
