Florida-based death metal act Six Feet Under have parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley, and replaced him with Marco Pitruzzella.
Marco, who previously played in Brain Drill, will make his live debut with Six Feet Under this Saturday in Memphis, Tennessee, at the Scion Rock Fest.
“I’m proud to announce a new addition to the ranks of Six Feet Under,” frontman Chris Barnes says.
“Replacing drummer Kevin Talley is our new friend and cohort, Marco Pitruzzella. Marco has worked with Jeff Hughell in their former band, Brain Drill, and is such an amazing talented and great guy. I’m very excited having him in the band and can’t wait to take the stage with Marco this Saturday in Memphis for Scion Rock Fest!”
He adds: “It was good working with Kevin Talley for the past couple of years, but we are very ready and extremely focused on moving the band forward with a new, more stable and permanent lineup for writing as well as touring. Be prepared to be shredded! See you all soon!”
That’s not a very good explanation of why Talley was dropped. Chris just says the band’s “very ready” to move on, making it seem as though working with him wasn’t so “good.”
