Founding Eyehategod guitarist Jimmy Bower is not participating in the band's current run of dates on the East Coast. Taking his spot is Brian Patton, a member of Eyehategod for nearly 25 years before exiting the band last summer. Eyehategod have issued the following statement:
"In accordance with the chaotic lifestyle that is every day reality, Eyehategod will continue to tour the USA while Jimmy Bower seeks help for visions unknown. We are happy to have back with us replacing him for this tour, our original second guitarist Brian Patton! Brian also of 90's prolific outfits Soilent Green and Outlaw Order has agreed to join us back to make this trek, which includes Muddy Roots festival in Tennessee and Scorched Tundra fest in Chicago. We are very excited and ready to destroy!"

EHG without Bower would be really weird. Has that ever happened before?

I too, would rather see Soilent Green.

We'd all rather see Soilent Green. Remember the tour when Soilent Green opened for Napalm Death and Isis? That was cool.

Eyehategod is the best. That's rad. They bring back the og guy to let Jimmy get healthy. Hardest working band out there.
