THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Announce New Bassist, Deny Breakup Rumors

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER guitarist Brian Eschbach has issued the following statement regarding the group's recent decision to withdraw from the SOILENT GREEN U.S. tour:

"We pulled off the SOILENT GREEN tour because Dave [Lock] (bass player) quit the band. We're currently practicing with our new bassist Joe Boccuto (SET ABLAZE). The rumors about us breaking up are definitely not true... there are just some changes being made. We'll be hitting the road again on the 25th to join ARCH ENEMY on the 'Anthems of Rebellion' tour. We apologize for all of the cancelled shows on the SOILENT GREEN tour. Make sure to check us out with ARCH ENEMY and HATE ETERNAL!"
