Bad news first: tomorrow nights Philly show will be my last show with the band for our tour with Architects. Now for the good news: MY BABY IS ON THE WAY!!! The band and I had all hoped I would be able to finish the last week of the tour but it looks like I have to make it home now as the docs have said that the baby could come as early as next week. The boys have given me their blessing to leave to be with my wife and I cannot wait to meet my little prince of darkness. Further to this, as master planners for all contingencies, we reached out well ahead of time to our old friend Nick Arthur (Molotov Solution) to see if he would be prepared to step in for me should the pregnancy speed up, and he will gladly be filling my shoes for the remaining dates. I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude and love to him for covering for me while I am with my family for the birth. Thanks guys!

Their most recent offering, 2017’s ‘Gravebloom’, continues to showcase the bands penchant for an all out aural onslaught. Continue reading
