Bostaph's departure

Bostaph gave the band prior knowledge of him wishing to leave before recording the DVD.[6] Bostaph has a copy but is yet to watch it, as it was his last release with the band and his third last live show; "You gotta understand that the taping of that; the Warfield show was two shows before my last show with the band. I haven't watched it because you kinda go back with your scene…for the fans, they see a show; for me, I see my second to last show with the band, you know what I mean? I have it but I needed to get some distance away from the situation and move on with my life. It's like breaking up with a girlfriend."[6] Bostaph eventually left the band before Christmas due to a chronic elbow injury, stating it would hinder his ability to play.[7] For other uses, see Christmas (disambiguation). ...

If your not, this video isn't going to change your opinion on the music."."[10] Patrizio criticised the video's direction, observing that "the camerawork is full of fast, MTV-style cuts, which, combined with the flashing lights, is more headache-inducing than the music."[10] For other uses, see IGN (disambiguation). ...
