Decrepit Birth vocalist Bill Robinson taking 'extended hiatus', replacement announced
Due to personal reasons, founding Decrepit Birth vocalist Bill Robinson "has decided to take an extended hiatus from the band." According to the group, Robinson "will be sitting out for a while."
Taking his spot in the interim is Mac Smith (Alterbeast, Krosis), whom Decrepit Birth call "an amazing vocalist."
Mac Smith comments: "Having an opportunity to work with Decrepit Birth is nothing short of surreal. Before I began pursuing metal vocals as an aspiring drummer, this was the first death metal band that I ever watched and emulated. To play a role in this project over a decade later leaves me astonished beyond words. I am looking forward to many new experiences with the guys and paying tribute to the legendary Bill Robinson's legacy. I'd like to give a special thanks to bassist Sean Martinez for being my strongest supporter personally this past year and being the key party that brought me into this role. He really brought me out of the worst slump in my career to this point, I owe everything to him. Additionally, I'd like to thank guitarist and founder Matt Sotelo for extending this opportunity and entrusting me with this position. Whether it be just for a singular tour, or more endeavors in the future, I will be forever grateful for being able to work with one of my favorite bands of all time. Thank you to my friends, family, and anyone else who has supported and listened to the band and my own musical projects in these past 5 years; I intend to make you proud! Decrepit Birth for life!"
Decrepit Birth are currently working on their next album and plan to tour significantly in 2022.
