Some people might have been expecting it after he joined Queensrÿche, the one where Geoff Tate is no longer part of the picture, but now Todd La Torre has left Crimson Glory after joining the band in 2010. Florida-based progressive metal band Crimson Glory will have to find a replacement.

The singer released a statement to Bravewords explaining this decision: "We were writing the new album and things were looking good. We had interest from two major European labels, which was very promising. I was very honored and proud that we were on the rise, and the fans were embracing all that we were doing. We had wonderful momentum and we were working within an important window of time within which the new record should have been recorded and released to have the most impact given the bands resurgence. Unfortunately, the record never materialized despite my best efforts."

"My involvement with Queensrÿche had nothing to do with the album progress. I haven't been contacted to write with Crimson Glory for over six months. As a band, our writing sessions were slow, eventually becoming non-existent before I ever joined Queensrÿche. During the specific timeframe that I was in talks with Queensrÿche, members of CG were simultaneously occupied by other external and internal endeavors that apparently absorbed the time and/or will away from CG, which is not fallacious per se, but it proceeded in passivity. The main reason for my resignation from Crimson Glory is primarily due to its inertia status."

"Crimson Glory was the catalyst that exposed me to the world as an undiscovered vocalist, and I am very thankful to them. Special thanks also to the amazing fans for their acceptance and support of not only Crimson Glory, but their continued support to me as an artist. Lastly, I sincerely wish my friends in Crimson Glory the absolute very best, both personally and professionally."

Guess they'll never get it together now, especially if La Torre really was the only one keeping the ball rolling.

They couldn't make it in 2 years, it had no chance. Crimson Glory died forever when Midnight died...
