The Knoxville, Tennessee-based group recruited Ben Harclerode of the band Knights Of The Abyss as Kevin's successor. Kevin Lane explains:

"Over the past years I've had the experience of a lifetime and gotten to travel the world with not only a great band of musicians but some of my best friends. Unfortunately, that time has come to an end. My playing had a falling out over the past year, thus I've decided to come home for good and go back to school full-time. The past few tours I had the privilege of my good friend Gavin Parsons to fill my shoes, and now another phenomenal drummer who I believe will do leaps and bounds of improvement to the band as a whole, Ben Harclerode, has moved into the position until the decision for a full-time drummer has been made."

According to Whitechapel founding member and guitarist Alex Wade, new drummer Ben Harclerode will be helping them out until they take further measures to decide on a permanent drummer.
