Acid Bath guitarist Sammy Duet has issued the following statement regarding the recent Acid Bath rumors.
“In response to the post by ‘Acidbath The Bayou Kid’ on June 3rd, 2014, I’d like to clarify a few things: [Drummer] Jimmy Kyle created that post without prior discussion with [guitarist] Mike Sanchez or myself [guitarist, Sammy Duet]. Acid Bath is not looking for a vocalist. There is no Acid Bath without [late bassist] Audie Pitre, so there will never be ‘new’ Acid Bath material.
“Currently, most of the surviving members of Acid Bath — Jimmy, Mike, and myself — have been considering the possibility of doing some shows in the future, as an Acid Bath tribute band, but nothing has been set in stone, and it is still just an idea. Unfortunately, [vocalist] Dax Riggs declines to be a part of such a tribute. We respect Dax and his decision.
“If we decide to put together an Acid Bath tribute band, the vocalist will be carefully chosen, but it is way too early to discuss choosing a vocalist at this time.
“I’d like to thank the loyal, diehard Acid Bath fans for their years of support, not just while Acid Bath was together, but for supporting us in all of our individual music projects.”
