Criminal Announce New Bassist

Anglo-Chilean thrashers CRIMINAL have announced Staff Glover as their new bass player, following the departure of original member Juan "Kato" Cueto. Glover had already stepped in during CRIMINAL's 2004 European tour with SIX FEET UNDER.

"It's a pity things didn’t work out with Kato, but his heart was obviously somewhere else," comments singer/guitarist Anton Reisenegger. "After recording 'Sicario' we did three shows in the U.K. with CHIMAIRA, which all went great, and everybody was very optimistic regarding CRIMINAL, but unfortunately Kato decided to return to Chile. It was a bad case of homesickness. It's great to have Staff in the band though," the frontman continues. "He’s a very solid player and a long-time friend of the band. We already had a great laugh on the SIX FEET UNDER tour. He's got this dark sense of humor which fits us perfectly. We are all in high spirits about our future as a band. Let's hope this line-up lasts for a bit longer!"

In other news, the readers of Terrorizer magazine voted CRIMINAL's latest output "Sicario" as the ninth best album of 2005.

CRIMINAL have lined up the following festival shows for the summer so far:

Jul. 22 - Urbach, GER - Zabbaduschder Festival
Aug. 25 - Gemünden, GER - Up From The Ground Festival
