Sin Quirin, the guitarist for the industrial metal band Ministry, is leaving the band. He announced the news on his Facebook page on May 14. He wrote: “Hey everyone, I hope you’re having a great Friday. I wanted to let you all know something that’s been on my mind for a while.
“I’ve decided to step down from MINISTRY. I’m in a much different place in my life right now and I feel the time is right for me to focus on my health, my personal life, as well as other projects and interests. MINISTRY will always be family to me. They all know I love them very much and that I want nothing but the best for them and much success. Thank you for your continued support everyone. Love you all!”
Quirin joined Ministry in 2007 and played on and off with the band until now. Some of the albums Ministry released while he was in the band include AmeriKKKant, The Last Sucker, and From Beer to Eternity.
