Former SOULFLY Bassist Joins Forces With Ex-STUCK MOJO Frontman

Former SOULFLY bassist Bobby Burns has uploaded a new video message in which he addresses his departure from the band and reveals the details of his new project, KILLER IN THE WORKPLACE, also featuring former/current members of STUCK MOJO and PRIMER 55.

"As most of you guys know, I've parted ways, mutually, with [SOULFLY] at this point," he states in the clip, which can be viewed below.

"I'm happy that I got to play in the band for seven years, four records, all the travelling and stuff like that. I'm still totally down with Max [Cavalera, SOULFLY mainman]. And it's all good. It's something that needed to happen. I needed to do other things at this point in my life. Like my new band, KILLER IN THE WORKPLACE, that I have up and running right now, finishing recording vocals right now. It features Bonz, who used to sing for STUCK MOJO; my buddy Curt Taylor from PRIMER 55 [on bass]; and our new fellow, Brian Jung, a slamming drummer.

"Ever since I've been home [after the completion of the most recent SOULFLY tour], I've been working steadily doing this stuff and putting this band together and getting these vocals to come out.

"It's the best stuff Bonz has ever done, I think, so I think everybody's gonna dig it.

"We're hitting the road October 1. We'll probably be on the road for two or three weeks testing out the waters, playing the new material and stuff like that.

"It's exciting; it's a really exciting time for me right now.

"Back to square one.

"I'm seeing it as a challenge, and I welcome it.

"I think it's gonna be cool. So far so good.

"I wanna thank everybody and all the SOULFLY fans, especially, for supporting me and all the really cool messages that you guys have sent me and the comments and everything. It really, really means a lot. And I hope to see you guys again soon."
