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.

One of the bass players of Decrepit Birth started working at my local guitar center and it was one of the saddest things I've ever seen in my life.

"Yeah you know what's interesting? A member of the band had a job that didn't pay very well." Don't you losers here typically want to exterminate all unemployed people? Lmao your job definitely sucks too.

Robinson heard the new Limp Bizkit and knew he would never live up.

This band rules. Touring sucks. Being in a band in general sucks. Good for Bill.

Bill just probably got stoned and wandered off into the woods or some shit

Personal Problems are nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have.

I wonder if Bill departed due to his antivaxx beliefs? Either that or just his age in general, the dude is like 60

I saw them 10 years ago and they had a sign at their merch table that they were looking for a place to crash. I can't imagine doing that in your 40's for no money
