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.

Yesterday, LIVING SACRIFICE released two brand new songs exclusively online. "Death Machine" and "The Battle," the band's first new songs since 2002, are available for purchase on the band's MySpace page through Bandbox. The single features brand new exclusive artwork by artist Dave Quiggle.

"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.

Living Sacrifice is finalizing a deal with Solid State for the release of their next full-length album.
