Couple Updates

Couple Updates Got a couple updates for you guys. First things first, if you've been out to these last few shows you might have noticed some new faces onstage. Eric and AJ decided that they wanted to spend more time with their families and other responsibilities at home, so they will not be touring with us anymore. They are great musicians and even better dudes and we'll miss them, but we feel like this band still has some things to say so we're gonna keep on keeping on! So here's the new lineup:

David Bunton-vocals
Joshua Childers-guitar
Yogi Watts-drums
Jeremiah Scott-Bass

These dudes are in it for the long haul and we could not be any more excited to be playing music with them. Yogi has been on the road for a long time but most of you probably recognize him as the drummer for Demon Hunter. Jeremiah is in a metal band from Nashville called Destroy Destroy Destroy, he also engineered A Chorus of Obliteration and co-produced "Backbreaker." We'll be on the road all year with these dudes, bringing heavy metal to a town near you, so come hang out with us! We're playing a lot of festivals this summer and in the process of booking several tours so keep an eye on our tour dates.

With that said, we are gonna play one last show with the "Backbreaker" lineup at Ichthus Festival in Wilmore, KY. Come thrash with those dudes one last time and show them some love!

And last, we're already in the process of writing a record with these dudes and its looking like its gonna be heavier than ever! Hoping to get in the studio sometime this fall so once again, keep your eyes peeled and we'll update you as soon as we can.

Thank you guys for sticking with us, things are about to get mega-heavy, we'll see you on the road!
