NEWS: Every Member Of SCALE THE SUMMIT Quit Except Chris Letchford

Chris Letchford is currently the only original member of Scale The Summit. Mark Michell and J.C. Bryant, now former drummer and bassist, both announced their departure from the band via Facebook. You can read their official statements below.

Letchford addressed the band’s line up changes as well and released the statement below.

Apparently the band implemented an employee model at the end of their last tour. Lecthford claims that he couldn’t afford the fees both J.C. and Mark demanded for their work and that ultimately lead to their departures. He also states that his income is based on chance and that he’s doing it for the love of the music. I’m skeptical about Lecthford’s position to not guarantee or set pay for anything the band does because he’s obviously the one dictating the terms.

Letchford claims J.C. and Mark left over money issues yet he fails to mention any budget for the band’s members in his statement. Scale The Summit is a pretty large band, and they definitely make money, so I’m not buying the starving artist routine Letchford is pulling here. If you want to join a full-time metal band and play for free then be my guest and starve but don’t scold others for looking out for their own best interests.

Things just don’t seem to add up if an entire band is willing to suddenly quit, without any concrete back up plans, out of the blue. Was Letchford really in no position to pay or did he just not want to pay the rest of the members for their work? This doesn’t look good for Scale The Summit.

All of the members except for Letchford quit Scale The Summit within a single album cycle. It’s worth mentioning that Travis LeVrier quit Scale The Summit about two months ago to join Entheos. Entheos is currently supporting The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s final US tour alongside O’brother and Cult Leader. J.C. and Mark are working on a new Tetrafusion album that will be released early next year and both are open to new opportunities.

Despite the setbacks, Lecthford announced that Charlie Engen has joined as the new drummer of Scale The Summit. New members will be announced soon along with more info on the band’s upcoming album. We will update you on any further developments.

    It’s Chris’ band. That’s been apparent to me since the days of MySpace. He’s a solo artist making a life for himself, how he chooses to go about handling the live aspect is on him. I think STS will be okay haha

  51. Seth R. Carruthers

    27 October, 2016 at 11:31 pm

    I’d say things are looking fine. Chris literally IS scale the summit. Bands like this are a revolving door in general, people come, people go, the OG and founder / overall dictator of the band stays. It happens. As for the author completely bashing Chris with the “he’s a liar and I’m not buying it” and “seems like they make money, and hes being greedy” shitwash, Thats just poor unfactual and opinionated writing. If you are not in STS, or a direct part of their management, you don’t have a single solitary clue what kind of revenue they actually make, or what the Ex-members financial demands were. Nor are those figures anyone’s business but their own. Neither of the departing parties went off on a tirade about “Chris makes money and is a greedy bitch and wont pay us blargh blargh blargh!!!!!!” or even hinted at anything even remotely unprofessional about their departure other than “it simply doesn’t pay the bills”. So I highly doubt the situation is as sketchy as the author of this made it out to be. I really hope the authors here can go back to using their brains to write and not their feelings. It seems like more and more of these articles are becoming straight up opinionated hogwash… This one in particular just stirring the rumor pot. “Things just don’t seem to add up if an entire band is willing to suddenly quit, without any concrete back up plans, out of the blue. Was Letchford really in no position to pay or did he just not want to pay the rest of the members for their work? This doesn’t look good for Scale The Summit.” Just straight up screams “im starting a rumor with no evidence whatsoever”. You guys are better than that…. this isn’t rockfeed or ultimate-guitar.

    it’s been said but I’ll re-iterate, take it easier on Chris lol

  55. Jacob Blanton

    It’s not the most accurate comparison but this reminds me of NINs earlier days.

    Before we start making assumptions, allow me to straighten you out. Intervals is a moniker under which I began creating music, by myself, in 2010. While it grew legs as a “band”, it has been my brain child and how I express myself from the beginning. When things changed in regards to personnel, we had reached a crossroads in which we all had examined the situation and we parted based on our expectations and what we wanted in life, at the time. There is a distinct difference between the intricacies of member changes (which is really no one’s business to begin with) and the reason that is being put forward here. How would I continue to do what I’m doing, (145 shows this year) with Plini (shared band and crew) whilst touring Animals As Leaders, etc… if anyone was treated unfairly or underpaid? Sometimes, there’s just a little more things than what you think you know. Thanks for asking.

    I wonder what kind of shitty article would make websites like this if Death would be an actual band: ”Every member except Chuck Schuldiner….” dude, is obvious that bands with a frontman who is the lead member in terms of creativity and directions are constantly changing his members. I mean, look around you: Obscura, Opeth, Katatonia…

    Lollerskates, I wish I was surprised. I guess this is what Chris gets. News flash, dude, most lead guitarists in rock/metal bands “write all of the guitars” and build drum/bass parts from there because it is the main driving voice in the instrumentation; you are not special in that regard nor is it accurate for you to claim all of the credit for the band’s success. STS has always been and always will be Travis, Jordan, Pat, and Chris as a collective, with Mark doing a hell of a job on The Migration by being much more than just a filler bass player. Compared to the perfection of their previous three records, the highly mediocre “V” seemed to signify a pretty clear downward trend. Chris will need a minor miracle to rebuild this band from nothing and have it not be a mere shadow of its glory days.

    But Chris explained it on fb already and has new people to announce. It’s pretty much been Chris the summit since the get go anyway. I trust in him

    Good. they’ve always been a little lack luster In comparison to others of their genre in my opinion.

  130. Robyn Njui

    28 October, 2016 at 1:29 am

    I wasn’t trying to be rude, I was trying to imply that either way it’s not a big deal since intervals is still amazing, and I have no doubt that StS will still be amazing.

    Aaron Marshall lost everyone in a short period of time after AVW, yet Intervals kept chuggin’ along. Actually, come to think of it, he needs to go back to incorporating some good chugging riffs. The Djent was lost on The Shape of Colour.

    Theo Schirmuhly Do it!

    You’re awesome. Took the words right out of my mouth!

  135. Aaron Marshall

    28 October, 2016 at 2:04 am

    I just wanted to be clear on the assumption about “firing everyone”. That’s just not the case.

  136. Daniel Reeves

    28 October, 2016 at 2:09 am

    Totally chris being a control freak, you can hear it in his words when he plays shows and his own actions of trying to be the “star” of sts. Really disappointed by this but i hope he finds a way to deflate his ego, its really off putting to the fans and his band mates.

  137. Joshua M. Branch

    28 October, 2016 at 2:12 am

    Were there even any original members besides Chris at this point?

  138. David Spor

    Tim Ossenfort why did I see this coming

  139. Hunter Kirschner

    Scale the Summit is progressives Megadeth and Periphery is progressives Metallica

  141. Jacob Blanton

    28 October, 2016 at 2:17 am

    Luke Boismier he is also an accomplished author. As well as a music teacher so, his bands income doesn’t attest to his personal salaries.

  142. Doug Clark

    28 October, 2016 at 2:26 am

    they make money, sure, but let’s be honest – it’s an instrumental rock/metal/djent act. it’s not the audience of your typical radio band. and being instrumental takes you further out of the interests of many. he makes money off guitar lessons, guitar books/dvds, endorsements, AND scale the summit. there’s more than one avenue here.

  143. Steve Ridenhower

    28 October, 2016 at 2:30 am

    Why would the article bash him like that? Without bands like scale the summit, there would be no it djents.

  144. Luke Boismier

    28 October, 2016 at 2:35 am

    I’m aware, I own a couple of his books.

    Chris also had additional income sources with the books and lessons and solo album

    There’s nothing wrong with having a primary writer in a band. It’s when other input isn’t valued that there are issues. On both sides. Artists should not have to compromise their vision too much and the other members shouldn’t just play along. The magic of good bands is that they’ve found that perfect balance between inspiration and collaboration.
    I’ve had my entire band quit on me before, and now the core members are back and we’re doing the best we’ve ever done.
    Music is about the impression of listener as much as the intention of the performer; there is no exception just because the listener also happens to be in the band.

  153. Chris James

    28 October, 2016 at 3:33 am

    Brandon Ainsworth bummer

    “Scale The Summit is a pretty large band, and they definitely make money, so I’m not buying the starving artist routine Letchford is pulling here. ” <—— LOL.  Clueless much?

    28 October, 2016 at 4:15 am

    Elliott his new stuff is great, but it’s not the kind of stuff that gets me excited. I need some of that heavy Aaron in my ears.
    In Time > The Shape Of Colour

    28 October, 2016 at 4:21 am

    Anytime that every member leaves a band but one you can god damned bet your ass he is a chode to work for/with.

  164. Rob Googs Kigutaq

    Guess he’s following the steps of megadeth or the faceless.

    Best of luck to Chris. He continues to do this for the love of the music, and for that reason he will be successful. U0001f918

    Chris is the brains for most of STS stuff anyways, as long as Chris is alive, STS is.

  171. Brandon Cooper

    28 October, 2016 at 6:45 am

    That sucks, but they can always recruit other people to fill those roles. Chris Letchford really was the mastermind behind their endeavors. Their sound might change, but that could also be a good thing lol

  172. Vinayak Tandon

    28 October, 2016 at 7:41 am

    Ishan Ambardar Yuvraj Rattan Mehra. This is what I was on about.

    Wesley Bond it’s the faceless pt. 2: words left unsaid.

  182. Justus McLaughlin

    28 October, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    I wander what Aaron Marshall of Intervals would think of this.

  183. Evan Draper

    28 October, 2016 at 6:02 pm

    Cough

  184. Matías Matteucci

    28 October, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    I agree with Elliott, The Shape of Colour blows out anything that came before it. To me it feels like the ex-members of Intervals were just getting into Aaron’s way, creatively speaking.

  185. Charlie Silveria

    28 October, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    I certainly hope he continues writing godly melodies!

    Except somehow no money

  189. Marine Lecleve

    What I am trully feeling right now.

  190. Brandon Stafford

    31 October, 2016 at 5:09 am

    Chris doesn’t need anyone else to do what he was paying them to do >.> He’ll just do it himself
