A few weeks ago grindcore collective Lock Up announced the departure of drummer and co-founder Nick Barker with the promise to name a replacement in the near future. The band has now fulfilled that promise and announced the addition of Pig Destroyer and Misery Index drummer Adam Jarvis to their line-up. Bassist Shane Embury (of Napalm Death fame) comments: "We are extremely thrilled to welcome Adam into the ranks of Lock Up! I have known Adam for a few years now and we just recently finished a European tour together - a super nice guy and killer skin beater. Lock Up has always been a rollercoaster of a ride since its inception way back in 1998 but Adam joining us now in these chaotic times I believe is surely going to refuel this seasoned grind machine... play fast or die!" Jarvis states: "I'm honored to be included in this killer line-up of incredibly talented musicians. I've had the pleasure of knowing these amazing dudes for over ten years and can't wait to collaborate on some vicious new tunes! I have the utmost respect for Nick Barker and it won't be easy to fill his shoes, but I'm up for the challenge. Grind!"
