Jason Truby To Guest w/ Living Sacrifice Tonight

Former Living Sacrifice guitarist Jason Truby (also ex-P.O.D.) will make a special appearance with Living Sacrifice tonight as the "Stronger Than Hell Tour" hits the band's hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas.

A founding member of Living Sacrifice, Truby was with the group from the time they formed in 1989 until he left the band in 1997. He was the lead guitarist on all of the band's albums through Reborn. After exiting Living Sacrifice, he played with P.O.D. from 2003 to 2006. He is currently working on new solo material.

"We're super excited to be able to put out some new stuff for people to hear. This is our newest material in more than five years!", says vocalist / guitarist and founding member Bruce Fitzhugh. "Now that these songs are posted we'll be playing them live while on tour with Demon Hunter!"

Fitzhugh is joined in the reunited Living Sacrifice by founding member / drummer Lance Garvin (Soul Embraced) as well as lead guitarist Rocky Gray (Soul Embraced, ex-Evanescence) and bass player Arthur Green, both of whom have played with Living Sacrifice since 2000's The Hammering Process.

"This tour has been more then we could hope for, it's awesome to see this band playing to some younger fans for the very first time," says Bruce.

SOUL EMBRACED, the Little Rock, Arkansas-based band featuring ex-EVANESCENCE drummer William "Rocky" Gray, has set "Dead Alive" as the title of its first studio album since 2003, due on April 29 through Solid State Records.

Originally a side project of drummer David Sroczynski and William "Rocky" Gray from SHREDDED CORPSE, SOUL EMBRACED dissolved after creating one song for a metal compilation. Rocky would reform the band with fellow LIVING SACRIFICE member and Christian metal legend Lance Garvin (drums) and his brother in-law Chad Moore (vocals). When Rocky and Lance weren't busy with LIVING SACRIFICE, they would hammer away at making material for their death metal side project. The band released an EP (1999's "The Fleshless" EP), and three albums (2000's "For The Incomplete", 2002's "This Is My Blood", and 2003's "Immune") over a five-year span. SOUL EMBRACED's debut album, "For the Incomplete", was re-released in 2003 by the independent label Blood and Ink Records.

SOUL EMBRACED is:

Rocky Gray - Guitar
Chad Moore - Vocals
Lance Garvin - Drums
Devin Castle - Guitar
Jeff Bowie - Bass
