Cattle Decapitation Parts Ways With Bassist, Troy Oftedal

In a recent message to the fans, Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan announced that the band has decided to part ways with bass player Troy Oftedal. The message from Ryan reads as follows:

"It is time to announce a few things that have been going on in the Cattle Decapitation camp. First off, we have officially parted ways with bassist Troy Oftedal due to musical and personal differences. There is no bad blood and we wish him the best of luck. Filling in on upcoming tours will be our friend Rahsaan Davis. You may have seen him on our recent tour as Troy left tour early due to a physical ailment.

"On to tours… We’ll be hitting the road in late September with SOULFLY, PRONG and MUTINY WITHIN for a US tour! Starting in our neck of the woods, the tour will lead us across the country, along the east coast and back home. We have a handful of dates already and there are more on the way!

"We’re also working on dates for a European tour! We expect that it will happen in the early winter months and we’ll keep you posted on that."
