Via Facebook, vocalist, Tyler Shelton announces his departure from the “NU HATE” metal ensemble, Traitors. Shelton states, “I have left Traitors. There’s so much to say but its all jumbled up in my head. I’m sure more will come clear when the time comes. This is very unfortunate and has been one of the toughest decisions of my entire life.”
Shelton, a founding member of the Florida band, released this statement late Sunday afternoon, January 8th, via his personal Facebook account. Shelton within this post discussed how his departure is mainly due to personal issues, including separation anxiety from friends and family when on tour, and also due to internal conflicts and decisions made within the band.

The timing of Shelton’s departure comes just a month before Traitors is set to begin the ‘NWO’ Tour with neighboring Florida act Bodysnatcher. No announcement has been released on the status of the band or on the upcoming ‘Nu World Order’ Tour.
[UPDATE / 01.18.17]: Last week, Traitors announced their disbandment following vocalist departure statement. See their full post in the link below.
