Anger As Art Part Ways With Bassist and Announces Replacement

Angelo Espino, who has previously played with HIRAX, REVEREND, DISSINTER, UNCLE SLAM, ONCE DEAD, VERMIN and LSN, and many others, has joined OSM recording artists ANGER AS ART.

Commented the band in a statement: "This was a coup for us to get someone of his caliber. We knew that a change was going to happen with Javier [Maruffo]. However, the timetable was moved up very rapidly in March. It came to our attention that Angelo was available and interested, so we made him an offer. Angelo and Dave [Chedrick, drums] played together in what we thought was HIRAX's best lineup — so they have that rhythm section vibe already in place, and it really shows when we play live. We wish Javier the best, and we part as friends and family."

Espino's first shows with ANGER AS ART were at Seattle Metal Fest on April 5, and also in support of TESTAMENT and OSM labelmates LAAZ ROCKIT in Southern California. For the SoCal dates, AAA contracted Medal Media Productions to shoot a concert video — which should see an early summer release.

ANGER AS ART plans to enter the studio in September or October to begin work on its third album for an early 2009 release.
