SIX FEET UNDER Split With Drummer Kevin Talley; Announce Replacement

Thursday, 30th May 2013

SIX FEET UNDER have parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley. However, the transition for the new drummer will be near-seemless, as he is a former band member of bassist Jeff Hughell. Marco Pitruzzella has officially joined the ranks of Six Feet Under and will make his debut appearance with the band this Saturday in Memphis, TN at Scion Rock Fest.

Chris Barnes discusses the lineup change: “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! 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 currently preparing for their next round of tour dates in support of Unborn. As previously announced, DECREPIT BIRTH and CANNABIS CORPSE will be joining them on this tour. Additionally, up-and-coming act DEALEY PLAZA will open the show. The tour begins July 10th in Houston, TX and VIP bundles are available at this location. Bundles include: ticket to the show, Six Feet Under shirt, limited Hell In July poster, and a back stage pre-show hang with Chris Barnes.
