Exhorder Hires Bassist Jorge Caicedo

Exhorder has tapped New Orleans bass player Jorge Caicedo for the upcoming tour with Rigor Mortis. Exhorder was planning initially planning on having one guitar player play bass instead, but many feared the songs would not sound the same.

Jorge, from The Great Void and Built to Destroy, will be joining Exhorder in the place of recently deceased Frankie Sparcello for the shows in Fort Worth, Texas, at The Rail Club on April 15th, Austin, Texas at Emo’s on April 16th, and New Orleans, Louisiana, at The Hangar on April 17th (where Frankie’s memorial was held on April 3rd). He may also be playing with the band at Maryland Death Fest in late May. Jorge claimed he is “very excited about it.” He has not had much time to prepare and has been learning Exhorder’s bass lines for just over a week, but the band and people who know him have every confidence in his abilities as a musician.
