Devourment Announces Band Lineup Changes

Devourment has announced a major lineup change that sees the band regressing to the sewage from which it was originally conceived.

After nearly 10 and 20 years, respectively, Eric Park and Mike Majewski have decided to leave the group to pursue other things. Their absence has ushered in the return of two of Devourment's most hailed players. Devourment co-founder Brad Fincher has reclaimed the drum throne, and Ruben Rosas has come back, sans guitar, to once again provide guttural filth on the mic. Rosas made his unique style of vocal assault infamous on the band's legen - wait for it - dary 1999 debut LP "Molesting the Decapitated."

In addition to that personnel shift, incumbent bassist Chris Andrews has taken over the role of guitar, where he will be debuting his crushing style worthy of the Devourment lineage. The band commented on the reformation:

"Devourment mines it's origins while marching toward a darker, ever more brutal future. Two eras ofthe Devourment legacy shift and combine in a completely new and deadly line-up. This hybrid monster is set to elevate the signature sound they created and deliver the definitive next level of hyper-brutal death metal. Nothing can prepare you for the Pure Apocalyptic Embludgeonment that is coming. Nothing."

The band will debut this new lineup starting July 12th in Dallas, TX followed by a series of U.S. tour dates and special appearances at Philadelphia's This Is Hardcore Fest, New York Deathfest, and Louisville Deathfest. Additionally the band has confirmed a run of South American dates this August plus an appearance at Germany's Essen Deathfest. A
