NORTH KOREA have announced that they have parted ways with their guitarist Brian Byrne.

Byrne himself writes:

After a lot of careful consideration, I’ve decided to bow out of North Korea and pursue other interests, musical and otherwise. This was a tough decision to come to as Mike, Bill, and Ryan are three of the most talented musicians anyone could hope to play with, but we’re simply 
on different pages as far as our musical directions go. 

Thank you for your support and dedication to our band these p

ast two years and please continue to support North Korea as they’ll be releasing a fucking bad ass album on Triple Crown Records at some point in the near future.

If you’d like to stay in touch I have a twitter (/brianbyrneinc), tumblr (, and I’ll answer whatever facebook messages that get thrown at me.

– Brian Byrne
