DYING FETUS have posted the following update:
“Mike Kimball has resigned his position in DYING FETUS. Here is a statement from Mike: ‘This is easily the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make in my life. I have had moments where I felt that it might be time to part ways with DYING FETUS but didn’t want to accept it, out of love for performing as a musician, and of course being less than thrilled with the prospect of disappointing my band mates or the fans. Being in DYING FETUS has been an amazing experience, and I’m eternally grateful to the guys in the band (past and present), as well as all of our crew members, all the bands we have toured with, and most of all the fans for their support. Thank you all so much!’"
"We are now holding auditions, live or video. Tablature is available on dyingfetus.com under media. Learn the songs; ‘Praise the Lord,’ ‘Pissing in the Mainstream,’ and ‘Justifiable Homicide.’ Contact us here, serious inquiries only. Must have NO criminal record and valid passport.
