Helstar Announces Matej Susnik To Fill In For Ill Bassist Jerry Abarca

As was recently reported, Helstar bassist Jerry Abarca is currently undergoing more testing to diagnose and treat his stomach-related illness. Abarca has now announced he will take a hiatus from performing live until his health has fully returned and doctors have pronounced him fit for stage.

Abarca first fell ill on Helstar's December 2010 European Chaos tour. Considered a medical emergency, Abarca was flown home to Texas, while Slovenian bassist Matej Susnik was then recruited to complete the tour.

Helstar will once again enlist the services of Susnik on the "Summer of Hate" European tour, slated to take place August 25th through September 5th. The tour will consist of eleven concerts covering eight countries (Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Austria, England, Greece and Italy).

A replacement bassist will also fill in on upcoming shows Helstar has scheduled in the U.S. Auditions are now underway, and Helstar will announce the session player for this position once a selection has been made.
