Yes, it is true. Six Feet Under have parted ways with drummer Kevin Talley who had joined them in 2011 to replace Greg Gall. Marco Pitruzzella has officially joined the ranks and will make his debut appearance with the band this Saturday in Memphis at Scion Rock Fest. He is a former band member of bassist Jeff Hughell.
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!"
