Matt DeVries, who has just parted company with Chiamara, shall replace Byron Stroud, who has recently assumed the bassist mantle with Three Inches Of Blood.  On the announcement of his inauguration into a band he’s supported as a fan and artist for 20 years, DeVries adds, “I could not be more excited to be part of this incredible band. We have shared the stage many times together and now I’m beyond stoked to be on the same stage playing together.”

 

Founding band members Dino Cazares and Burton C Bell are equally excited at DeVries’ appointment: “We feel he is a great addition to our touring lineup. He has been a friend for a very long time and he’s a great musician who will be a perfect instrument in the FF machine.”

 

It’s anticipated more news on their upcoming eighth studio album will be revealed in the coming weeks.
