VILE Split With Longtime Guitarist, Seek Replacement

Californian brutal death metallers VILE have announced the departure of longtime guitarist Aaron Strong. "Our last tour was quite successful and hinted at what the future holds for VILE," reads a post on the band's web site. "It was this realization that caused vocalist Juan Urteaga and now Aaron Strong to leave their positions in the band.

"It becomes more and more obvious as time goes on that playing this music is a lifestyle and not just a pastime. As the band becomes more popular the demand on the musicians becomes higher. The band must come before EVERYTHING to make this work. People that are not committed to making this project the number one priority in their lives, eventually must leave the band. We will surely miss the talented contributions of these two members.

"VILE is obviously looking for replacements for these positions. If there is anyone that is willing and able to take either of these spots, first listen to our music and then decide if you have what it takes to meet or exceed the contributions of the former players. Contact guitarist Colin Davis ([email protected]) and we can arrange a try-out. We are looking for permanent members but will also consider working with someone on a touring only basis.

"In the meantime, Colin Davis is working on new material for the next VILE album scheduled to be recorded and released in Summer/Fall of 2004."
