Sinn replaces the band's former bassist who departed in light of his arrest. They made the announcement to their street team:
We are very happy to announce that Ryan Sinn will be playing bass for Love Equals Death. Ryan is best known [from] The Distillers and most recently Angels and Airwaves. He's not just an amazing bass player, but he has been a good friend for some years now. Be sure to welcome him with open arms.
Sinn departed Angels & Airwaves last month.
