Reavis, who has fronted the band for the past 11 years, announced the news to fans on Monday (05Oct15) via a video message on his website.

He said, "I'm not in Mushroomhead. It's f**king true. I'm out... Trust me, I am going to go something... Change was coming. I'm out but I'm not gone."

The band has yet to comment on the split.

Mushroomhead formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1993. The band has gone through many line-up changes, with vocalist Jeffrey Hatrix, Tom Schmitz and drummer Steve Felton the only consistent members.
