Currently at home gearing up for the forthcoming Scum of the Earth tour alongside THROWDOWN, SOILWORK, and WAR OF AGES, South Carolina's THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD has issued an update on the band's recent lineup change: "We just want to fill everyone in on the current situation with TTEOTD," guitarist Justin Longshore says. "First off, this band isn't going anywhere and we are still doing the THROWDOWN/SOILWORK tour as planned. To avoid any complications, we'll just state that Josh [Kulick, drums] and Nate [Johnson, vocals] have both parted ways with the band under their own circumstances. We wish them the best of luck in the future.
"We are excited to announce that Lech, formerly of AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, will be handling drums for us on the upcoming tour. He's a monster behind the kit and has proven to us to be the right fit for our style. And stepping into the vocal spot is Lou Tanius, who has previously put time in with ON PATHS OF TORMENT and INVOCATION OF NEHEK."
Continuing to promote the band's recent release, "Malice", THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD recently completed a U.S. run supporting AS I LAY DYING, labelmates ALL THAT REMAINS and HASTE THE DAY. The band has toured alongside THE RED CHORD, DESPISED ICON, ALL SHALL PERISH, SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY as well as headlined a U.S. run with AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, BENEATH THE MASSACRE and ION DISSONANCE.
