Six Feet Under Make Drummer Change, Announce 2013 Summer Tour
Six Feet Under will kick off their summer touring in just a few days and there will be a new face behind the drumkit when it happens. The group revealed that they've parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley and they've replaced him with Marco Pitruzzella.
Pitruzzella has a connection with Six Feet Under as he previously played with bassist Jeff Hughell in a prior band. The drummer will make his debut this Saturday (June 1) in Memphis when the band performs at the Scion Rock Fest.
Six Feet Under's Chris Barnes stated, "I'm proud to announce a new addition to the ranks of Six Feet Under. Replacing drummer Kevin Talley is our new friend and cohort, Marco Pitruzzella. Marco has worked with Jeff Hughell in their former band, Brain Drill, and is such an amazing talented and great guy. I'm very excited having him in the band and can't wait to take the stage with Marco this Saturday in Memphis for Scion Rock Fest!"
Of Talley, he added, "It was good working with Kevin Talley for the past couple of years, but we are very ready and extremely focused on moving the band forward with a new, more stable and permanent lineup for writing as well as touring. Be prepared to be shredded! See you all soon!"
Six Feet Under are touring in support of their 'Unborn' album. Dates for the band's summer trek can be seen below.
