Following releases on labels like Relapse and A389, California metal band Seven Sisters of Sleep have disbanded. The news comes as a direct result of their rhythm guitarist, Eddie John Bermudez, pleading guilty to multiple charges related to child pornography. 

According to Orange County Weekly, the 40-year-old Bermudez turned himself in last week after being charged with over two dozen counts including lewd acts on a child. He has been accused of posing as a 16-year-old boy on Facebook and soliciting explicit images from girls as young as 13.

If convicted on all charges, Bermudez faces 244 years to life in prison.

The band announced that they were disbanding as a result of Bermudez' arrest. Read their full statement below.
