Jungle Rot Drummer Departs Due To Personal Crisis, Replacement Named

Jungle Rot has issued the following statement about their drummer's departure: "Eric found himself in a personal crisis that demanded his utmost attention; therefore he had no choice but to leave the band. Since then, we have been jamming with our good friend Tony Ochoa (SINDROME, SPEED HATE KILL) behind the kit and things are sounding great! Tony is a ridiculously hard hitter and will be joining us on the road for the upcoming U.S. tour!

"In other news: Will be touring the US & Canada in support of the band’s latest album 'What Horrors Await,' via Austria's Napalm Records. Support on this trek will come from: Metal Blade artists: Lightening Swords of Death and Woe of Tyrants"

David Matrise further commented about the upcoming tour: "We are stoked to get back out on the road in the U.S. and Canada! It's been way too long! We expect to see you at the shows! No excuses! For all the fans in areas of the country we are not visiting on this tour, fret not! We will be doing more extensive touring in the spring after the release of our new album."
