Currently at home gearing up for the forthcoming Scum of the Earth tour alongside Throwdown, Soilwork, and War of Ages, South Carolina’s THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD have issued an update on the band’s recent line-up change: “We just want to fill everyone in on the current situation with TTEOTD,” guitarist Justin Longshore says. “First off, this band isn’t going anywhere and we are still doing the Throwdown/Soilwork tour as planned. To avoid any complications, we'll just state that Josh [Kulick, drums] and Nate [Johnson, vocals] have both parted ways with the band under their own circumstances. We wish them the best of luck in the future.

“We are excited to announce that Lech, formerly of As Blood Runs Black, will be handling drums for us on the upcoming tour. He's a monster behind the kit and has proven to us to be the right fit for our style. And stepping into the vocal spot is Lou Tanius, who has previously put time in with On Paths of Torment and Invocation of Nehek.”

Continuing to support the band's recent release, 'Malice,' THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD recently completed a U.S. run supporting As I Lay Dying, labelmates All That Remains and Haste The Day. The band has also supported ‘Malice’ alongside The Red Chord, Despised Icon, All Shall Perish, See You Next Tuesday as well as headlined a US run with As Blood Runs Black, Beneath The Massacre and Ion Dissonance. The debut video from "Malice," for "Failure In The Flesh," is available online here, while some in-studio footage is available here.

The new drummer is a great addition. Even if you're not a fan of As Blood Runs Black, the drumming on their first cd was intense.

Good god! These boys sound very busy! What an intense schedual to have and to have to find a new members is always rough on short notice. The Hawthore District will love them as in that area of Portland is famous for being "Freakville." I my self have had interesting experiances there. Portland in general really. I had a bum 86ed out of Portland for randomly grabing my tit! Punched the guy in the head as hard as I could with Fred my casket ring and told him to get the f*** out! I was very angry! Honestly, who thinks its o.k to just grab a womans tit!?

*LOL* At that time they were smaller than they are now, now they get in the way of things. Men, I feel bad for cos when their stuff gets in the way of something (i.e you end up rolling on top of it wrong while sleeping) it REALLY hurts as I am told.
