Soulfly bassist quits, joins Fear Factory

Friday, May 1, 2015 5:26 PM PT

Former Static-X bass player Tony Campos has announced that he's left Soulfly and joined Fear Factory. Here is his statement:

"Big announcement time. Now that I'm back out on the road with Ministry, I can go ahead and tell you all what's going on without confusing everyone (hopefully). After I'm done with this Ministry run, I will begin playing bass for Fear Factory. This is the gig I wanted when Static-X was falling apart, and I'm really excited that I finally get to do it. My first show with them will be at Amnesia Rock Fest on June 20th, the day after I play with Ministry at Amnesia Rock Fest.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Max and Gloria Cavalera, and the whole Soulfly tribe for the incredible opportunity they gave me. It was a great three+ years, and I enjoyed every minute of it. You have my eternal gratitude, love, and respect, and I hope we can work together again in the future."

Most honest press release ever.

"The gig I really wanted opened up and I'm going for it."

America needs more of this.

Wait, people can leave a band without bad blood and have good things to say!? Side note, Demanufacture & Obsolete rule, would love to see Fear Factory tour and play one or both of those records back to back.
