THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Guitarist Quits; Band To Tour As Four-Piece
Vocalist Trevor Strnad of the Michigan-based melodic death metal band THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER has issued the following update:
"On the eve of our December tour with friends MISERY INDEX and SOILENT GREEN, we in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are faced with a heartbreaking dilemma: John [Kempainen; guitar] has abruptly left the fold and refuses to accompany us on the tour. We are left with no choice but to carry on with the dates as a four-piece. The remaining members of the band apologize for these unprofessional circumstances, but we feel that it is best to go through with the tour and not disappoint the other bands as well as the fans who are looking forward to these shows. Please come out and show some BLACK DAHLIA love in our hour of need."
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's tour with MISERY INDEX and SOILENT GREEN is scheduled to kick off on December 1 in Iowa City, Iowa.
The band's new album, "Nocturnal", was released on September 18, 2007 via Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2005's "Miasma" was recorded with Eric Rachel (who mixed "Miasma") and was mixed by Jason Suecof.
