The Black Dahlia Murder Drummer Leaves, Updates

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER have issued the following update on their official site:

"First of all, we in THE BLACK DAHLIA camp want to apologize for the lack of updates. From now on, the updates will be handled by Dave and myself, so you can expect to finally know what is going on with the band.

The ETID and VITAL REMAINS tours were a complete success. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, put us up, etc. We greatly appreciate your kindness.

We also played Download Fest in the UK a few weekends ago. Although we played at the same time as MACHINE HEAD AND HATEBREED, the set was a success. We also drank free Aftershock and saw BURST. So fuck you. Props to the guys in Johnny Truant for taking care of us.

The “A Cold-Blooded Epitaph” rerelease is nearing completion, and should be available in the next couple of months. The artwork is again being handled by Black Market Activities own Adam Wentworth.

This brings us up to our most recent BDM news: drummer Cory Grady has been asked to leave the band due to personal and professional conflicts. Cory has been in the band since its inception, and it was not an easy decision on our part. In the good news, we are honored to welcome Zach Gibson to the throne, and can assure you that you will be seeing us on our summer tour with the mighty CANNIBAL CORPSE. We will spend four weeks as direct support for CANNIBAL CORPSE and SEVERED SAVIOR opening; following will be a two week headlining stint with CATTLE DECAPITATION and GOATWHORE

Eat pussy and freak out"
