Benighted - Split With Bassist

After cheering us up with the new album details revealed last month, Benighted have today unveiled more bitter news. They've parted ways with bassist Eric Lombard, who has been part of the group since 2004, and has performed on 4 full-length studio albums. The band did not hesitate and already announced Alexis Lieu as the replacement for Eric.

Benighted commented: "We are sad to announce that our brother Eric will no longer play bass in the band due to his new family responsibilities which keep him busy. We wish him the best in the future and thank him for all these years together. In the meantime, we are happy to announce Alexis Lieu as our new bass player! We're looking forward to see you on tour with our new line-up and can't wait to play tracks from Carnivore Sublime live. Thank you all for your amazing support!

Additionally, as some of you already know, Kevin has been drumming with Decapitated in November, so unfortunatly he will be missing on the promo pictures and our new videoclip that we have shot during this month. No worries, he's still the official drummer of Benighted."
