The Showdown replaces two members

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 9:06 AM PT


The Showdown has announced the departure of drummer AJ Barrette and bassist Eric Koruschak, as the two "wanted to spend more time with their families and other responsibilities at home." Replacements have been found in Timothy "Yogi" Watts (Demon Hunter) and Jeremiah Scott (Destroy Destroy Destroy).

Guitar player Josh Childers comments: "These dudes are in it for the long haul and we could not be any more excited to be playing music with them. Yogi has been on the road for a long time but most of you probably recognize him as the drummer for Demon Hunter. Jeremiah is in a metal band from Nashville called Destroy Destroy Destroy, he also engineered A Chorus of Obliteration and co-produced Backbreaker. We'll be on the road all year with these dudes, bringing heavy metal to a town near you, so come hang out with us! We're playing a lot of festivals this summer and in the process of booking several tours so keep an eye on our tour dates. With that said, we are gonna play one last show with the Backbreaker lineup at Ichthus Festival in Wilmore, KY. Come thrash with those dudes one last time and show them some love! And last, we're already in the process of writing a record with these dudes and its looking like its gonna be heavier than ever! Hoping to get in the studio sometime this fall so once again, keep your eyes peeled and we'll update you as soon as we can."
