Of The First Born Son Part Ways with Guitarist Mike Rideout and Bassist Curt Long

Of The First Born Son has announced upcoming tour dates with Fredericton, NB based We The Undersigned. Of The First Born Son recently parted ways with guitarist Mike Rideout and bassist Curt Long. The group is currently auditioning replacements and will make an announcement shortly.

"We were disappointed that Curt and Mike decided to leave the band, but in the end it will benefit us as far as song writing for our next release goes. We just consider this a small bump in the road," says frontman Jamie Schoch. "It's always unfortunate to see people leave our family but we understand that not everyone is cut out for this business. We are dedicated, ready to continue with the tour and already have Hutton W. (ex-A Satellite Connecticut) and Paul Taylor (ex-Skylight Drama) filling in for us. Nothing will stop this band."

Of The First Born Son released their debut album on Year of the Sun Records and have been making a name for themselves in the hardcore and metal scenes utilizing a lethal combination of blistering breakdowns and metallic fretwork. The band's non-stop tour schedule has earned them high profile spots opening for the likes of Emmure, Arise and Ruin, Legeia, Endwell, Farewell to Freeway and A Perfect Murder.

We, the Undersigned have made a name for themselves as one of the most promising bands to emerge out of the Canadian East Coast metal scene. The band has opened high profile shows with Cancer Bats, The End, Ten Second Epic and was handpicked by Protest The Hero to open dates on their headlining tour.
