On December 21, 2011, Born of Osiris fired guitarist Jason Richardson. The official press release came three weeks later. Richardson immediately joined Salt Lake City deathcore act Chelsea Grin following his departure from the band. In response to the official statement released by the band, he wrote a scathing status update on his personal Facebook page, stating that the other band members frequently abused alcohol and prescription drugs. Richardson had served as a touring member within Chelsea Grin prior to him being kicked out of the band.
