Benighted Splits With Bassist

France's Benighted will release new album "Carnivore Sublime" this coming February 18th (February 14th worldwide). The band has now issued the following announcement about parting ways with its bassist:

"We are sad to announce that our brother Eric will no longer play pass in the band due to his new family responsibilities which keep him busy. We wish him the best for the future and thank him a lot for all these years together! In the meantime, we are happy to announce Alexis Lieu as our new bass player!

"The second point is that, as some of you already know, Kevin has been drumming with Decapitated in November so unfortunately he will be missing on the promo pictures and our new video clip that we've made during this month. But no worries, he's still the official drummer of Benighted!

"We're looking forward to see you on tour with our new line up and can't wait to play tracks from Carnivore Sublime live! Thank you all for your amazing support! Video clip to be released really soon!" More...
