OF THE FIRST BORN SUN Parts Ways With Guitarist, Bassist

Kitchener, Ontario, Canada-based band OF THE FIRST BORN SUN has parted ways with guitarist Mike Rideout and bassist Curt Long. The group is currently auditioning replacements and will make an announcement shortly.

Commented frontman Jamie Schoch: "We were disappointed that Curt and Mike decided to leave the band, but in the end it will benefit us as far as song writing for our next release goes. We just consider this a small bump in the road. Its always unfortunate to see people leave our family but we understand that not everyone is cut out for this business. We are dedicated, ready to continue with the tour and already have Hutton W. (ex-A SATELLITE CONNECTICUT) and Paul Taylor (ex-SKYLIGHT DRAMA) filling in for us. Nothing will stop this band."

OF THE FIRST BORN SON released its debut album on Year of the Sun Records and has been making a name for itself in the hardcore and metal scenes, utilizing a lethal combination of blistering breakdowns and metallic fretwork. The band's non-stop tour schedule has earned them high-profile spots opening for the likes of EMMURE, ARISE AND RUIN, LEGEIA, ENDWELL, FAREWELL TO FREEWAY and A PERFECT MURDER.

WatchMojo.com recently interviewed the band at a recent tour stop in Montreal, Quebec and spoke to the band about their recently released new album. The interview can be seen online at this location.
