In a statement made to Alternative Press, Crown the Empire quoted the decision to leave to differences in dynamic. Vogelman played on both full length albums, The Fallout (2012) and The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways (2014). Vogelman’s departure comes just a week after the release of The Resistance: Deluxe Edition, which featured previously unreleased content. The statement Crown the Empire made to Alternative Press can be found below:

“Benn has chosen to leave Crown the Empire. While this might come as a shock to a lot of you, we as a band have known this was coming for quite some time. Every group has its internal dynamic, and for Benn, he eventually realized that he wanted to explore other opportunities outside of that. Although we’re sad to see him go, we wish him all the best”
