Kingdom Of Sorrow has announced that founding member Kirk Windstein, who is also a founding member of Crowbar and Down, will not be taking part in the band's upcoming tour dates due to health issues. In his place will be Type O Negative guitarist Kenny Kickey.
Kirk Windstein states: "Hey all, Kirk here. Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a much needed break and will not be joining my bros in KOS for Ozzfest. I have entered the AA program and am turning over a new leaf. 25 years of gigging and touring has taken its toll and my drinking is now preventing me from being the healthiest, best player that I can be. It’s been a fun ride, but I’m ready to tackle this sober and look forward to being at the top of my game with all of my projects! I am happy to say that Kenny Hickey will once again be filling my spot for these 8 shows. Thanks Kenny, I love you bro!!! Thanks to everyone for their support. All my best, Kirk Windstein."
Jamey Jasta adds: "The road is no place for Kirk right now. He has begun to address his problems so he can lead a happy and healthy life and continue to rock with Down, CROWBAR and Kingdom Of Sorrow. I only want the best for him and I feel like sitting this tour out is a step in the right path."
