Although there has been talk of Bad Religion splitting with Greg Hetson for over a year, and recent Bad Religion performances have featured Mike Dimkich in the Hetson slot, the guitarist has officially announced that he has left the band. The guitarist said via Twitter:
"As some people noticed I have left Bad Religion. Thanks to everyone for 29 plus years of support."
Last May, Bad Religion's Jay Bentley stated
"Greg Hetson is dealing with some personal issues. If he wishes to make a statement we will support that, if he chooses not to we will support that. Mike Dimkich is indeed helping us out right now, and we are genuinely appreciative."
