Napalm Death has announced that guitar player Mitch Harris will be not be playing with the band for the foreseeable future. Here's the official word:
"Due to illness within his family, we would like to announce that Mitch Harris will unfortunately not be performing with us for the near future. We stress that this is not a permanent arrangement, although we are unsure exactly when Mitch will return under the circumstances. Naturally, we sympathise and wish Mitch all the best for now. In the meantime we will be joined by guitarists who we know can grind it out in his absence. Thanks for your understanding."Just yesterday the band announced a winter North American tour with Voivod, Exhumed, and others. No word on whether Harris will be part of the lineup, though it seems unlikely.
