BoundAlive Bassist Leaves Line Up

Jorge A. Avila, bass player for New Jersey metal band BoundAlive, announced from his personal Facebook page that he is leaving the band.  Below is his statement:

For close to 7 years now I have given my body, heart, mind and soul to BoundAlive and have done so with great pleasure and desire. I have always pushed forward and always given BoundAlive 200% of myself even at times where others would’ve folded, I kept on going. My desire and drive to push BoundAlive forward and my love for the arts of performing and creating music has always been intact and never greater.
After such desire, drive and motivation got questioned again for something so little and stupid that could’ve been easily fixed with communication and then also being compared to someone who never displayed none of those emotions…well that’s where I drew the line. Since apparently, I no longer “want” to play, I have been forced to step away even though that was never what I wanted.
I am sad to say that I am no longer part of BoundAlive and wish BoundAlive all the success in the world. Thank you all for all the great memories I will cherish for the rest of my life.
