Longtime Vertical Horizon guitarist Keith Kane has decided to part ways with the band and pursue other side project's and a solo career according to a post on the musician's webpage.

"It is with a mix of nostalgia and excitement that I announce today that after an amazing 19 years, I will no longer be touring with Vertical Horizon as I shift my focus to my solo career," Kane stated in a post on his website.  "I would like to thank all of my fans for your support and kind words from the early Georgetown University days to the present. It has been an incredible ride!"

Kane appears to already have begun work on this solo debut, and also plans to spend time on the side project he started years ago with members of Stroke 9, called Boys Gone Wild. 

"I am hopeful that you will all join me in this exciting new chapter in my life," Kane went on to say in his post.  "Furthermore, I'd like to wish the best for Matt and the rest of Vertical Horizon as they continue on with the band we built together."

Vertical Horizon has named Corey McCormick as touring guitarist to take Kane's place, a permanent replacement is expected to be named at a later date.

Good luck with your Eddie Van Halen leads and your "easy as pie" drop D riffs. It's pretty obvious you just kicked the most talented guy out of the band. All I have to say is "Shackled" and "Wash Away". Smooch it, Matt. Cheers to you, Keith, and good luck man.

I agree, Vertical Horizon hasn't been a democratic band since "EYW", the last two albums were all Matt and he wouldn't let Keith use any of his compositions . looking forward to hearing his voice again! his harmonies made VH special, Matt is all about dollar bills

Vertical Horizon has been a Matt Scannell solo project for the last two albums anyway, and now without Keith and Sean Hurley the Vertical Horizon brand might as well be retired. Best of luck to all of them!
