UNEARTH Bassist Forced To Leave Tour

Due to a family emergency, UNEARTH bassist John "Slo" Maggard had to fly home from tour today. Filling in for him on the band's run with TESTAMENT and LAZARUS A.D. will be former SINCE THE FLOOD guitarist Dave Stauble.

Maggard hopes to rejoin the band in a couple of weeks.

UNEARTH's song "Grave of Opportunity" is now available as a downloadable track on the Guitar Hero World Tour. The song is part of the Ferret Music/Metal Blade Track Pack, which also contains THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA's "Dez Moines" and CHIMAIRA's "On Broken Glass".

UNEARTH is touring in support of its critically acclaimed album, "The March", which hit streets on October 14, 2008 and debuted at No. 45 on The Billboard 200 chart. Revolver magazine called "The March" a "magnificently majestic group effort" and praised it as "some of the smartest writing in metal."

On March 19, UNEARTH teamed up with Artificial Army to shoot a video for the song "Grave of Opportunity".
