Decrepit Birth loses two members

Santa Cruz, California death metal band Decrepit Birth has announced the recent departures of both drummer KC Howard and guitar player Dan Eggers. Here's the official word: "Drummer KC Howard and guitarist Dan Eggers have both decided to part ways with the band. We want thank them very much for the hard work. KC left the band right after the recording of the new album, to pursue his career as a full-time music teacher. KC contributed since 2004 and has been an integral part of the band over the past years. Dan, who joined in 2008, decided to part ways to due to personal career choices. We wish them the best of luck and success in whatever they do. "For live shows, we will be bringing in drummers Samus Paulicelli (ex-Abigail Williams) and Lee Smith (Estradasphere)... both helping us (separately) on various future tours. As well, guitarist Chase Fraser (Animosity, Son of Aurelius) will bring his amazing guitar skills to the table. "This temporary reconstruction of the bands line-up has left us no choice but to cancel for the 4th annual California Metal fest. We apologize to all the fans that were looking forward to seeing Decrepit Birth at the CAMF this year. We will be back for the Summer Slaughter tour 2010 with a new lineup and ready to perform a new setlist featuring songs from our upcoming album "Polarity" which will be released 7/27 on Nuclear Blast Records."
