Commented guitarist Arthur Alvarez: "With the tragic loss of our great friend and bass player Patrick Jones, we are forced to bring a new member into the band. Adam Swan, our good friend for years has joined the ARSONISTS camp on bass. All of us have known Adam for years and we couldn't think of anyone else better fit for the job. Patrick will never be replaced as our bass player, but we are forced to move forward as what he would have wanted. He will always be in our hearts. Nick has also decided to step down from playing guitar. He has decided to move on with his life and pursue a different career. We have no hard feelings and wish him the best of luck. He will always remain a close friend whether it is in the band or not. Derek Yarra has joined on guitar and after our first practice with him we are shredding more than ever. This guy is a beast!
ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS released its debut offering, "Hits From The Bow", on Process Records in 2006.
