Veil Of Maya replaces bassist

Veil Of Maya has announced the departure of bass player Kris Hilger, who has amicably left the group to "pursue other things going on in his life." Replacing Hilger is ex-Born Of Osiris guitarist Matthew Pantelis. Pantelis comments: "As far as any of you are concerned, I used to be in a band with [vocalist] Brandon for some time that used to jam alongside Veil around Chicago. So when I found out that Kris split, I was enthralled to help out my buddies! Bass is sick and being with good friends of mine all the time is even more amazing. But the best part is making the change-up permanent. Upon all that being said, the next album released by us will mask you. Come say 'hi' at the Crush Em All Tour, and Marc, Sam, Brandon, and I will teach everyone how to say Veil of Maya!"
