A press release came out yesterday about Prong, who are currently in the middle of a short European tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of its landmark Beg To Differ album.
Alas, bassist Tony Campos has not been playing with the band.
Instead, bassists Matt Brunson of Crowbar and former Cradle of Filth bassist Dave Pybus have been filling in.
“Since Tony Campos (who has been touring with the band and played on Carved Into Stone) is touring with Soulfly, we’ve had to tour with other bass players,” Tommy Victor says.
“Everyone who has toured with us so far has been fantastic and brought their own personal style to Prong. Phil Zeller from Toxic Holocaust did the Crowbar tour. Jason Rapesi, who has played with Stone Sour, did a few shows with us before that. We were heading to Europe and the guy we had couldn’t do it in the eleventh hour. Rather than cancel, our friend Matt Brunson from Crowbar stepped in and learned the entire Beg To Differ album in a day and a half!
“Then we found out that Dave Pybus, who has played with Cradle of Filth, was going to be the tech on the tour. As it turned out, Dave is a massive Prong fan! He learned some of the other songs and has been joining Alexei and I onstage every night. Now we have two great bass players each night! This tour has been a blast!”
Prong is set to tour this July with Clutch.
