Exhumed is excited to announce a new member to the band's dysfunctional family. Joining the band as the new permanent drummer is Canadian native Matt Connell (ex-Fuck the Facts and Experiment in Terror). Exhumed would like to extend a “fuck yeah!” to Connell, who replaces founding member Col Jones (who left the band in 2003, shortly after the recording of "Anatomy is Destiny"). Connell agreed, adding “I'm totally stoked! It's awesome to be part of a band I have always held in such high regard. I look forward to helping the guys unleash some good ol' Gore Fuckin' Metal upon the masses.” The other Matt in the band, sole-remaining original member Matt Harvey, welcomed Connell aboard. “Mike (Beams, guitar and vocals) and I are both excited to be finally solidifying a permanent line-up, and the other Matt is going to be a killer addition to the band. While the Canadian jokes will undoubtedly fly fast and furious in the tour van, no one will be joking when they hear some seriously intense one-foot blasts from this guy! I personally guarantee that it will be a total autopsy holocaust doss of maddening mega-grinding!”

Connell will make his recording debut with Exhumed this December when the band will be recording an album of covers to be titled "Regurgitated Requiems: Garbage Daze Re-Regurgitated." The album is slated to feature covers from Siege, Master, Metallica, Hexx, Epidemic, Unseen Terror, Amebix, Sadus, Samhain, G.B.H., The Cure, and others to be announced soon.

Since the departure of Col Jones, who provided percussion for the band from 1991-2003, Exhumed has enlisted the services of Danny Walker (of Uphill Battle and Cinema Strange) and Death Metal hired gun John Longstreth (currently touring with Dying Fetus) on various tours throughout the US, Europe, Japan, Australia, and Iceland.
