RESURRECTION Part Ways with Vocalist/Bassist Damian Chavez

Long-running Floridian death metal band and recent Old School Metal Records signees, RESURRECTION have announced the departure of bassist/vocalist Damian Chavez. The announcement comes less than a month before the band’s March of Death European Tour. RESURRECTION has recruited Jeff Surmell of SOLACE OF REQUIEM to fill in for the tour. The band had the following to say regarding the split with Chavez:

“As of today (Feb. 18, 2014) RESURRECTION vocalist/bassist Damian Chavez is no longer with the band. Many reasons went into the decision to part ways, but all that needs to be said is that Damien is on a different level musically as well as personally, than the rest of the band. Our priorities just no longer aligned. Without going into excessive and unnecessary detail, and as hard as it is this close to the European tour, the band had to make the tough decision to cut our losses and move on.

Jeff Sumrell, front-man for the technical Death Metal band SOLACE OF REQUIEM will be handling the vocal and bass duties during the upcoming ‘March Of Death‘ European tour. Jeff toured with the band in 2010 during the ‘Resurrected In Europe‘ Tour and kicked-ass every night of the tour. Jeff‘s vocal style and power dramatically add to the brutality of our live performance and we’re excited about what the future might hold with Jeff and Resurrection. We would like to thank our fans for the continued support.”

RESURRECTION has made their newest song, “Rain of Ashes,” available for streaming here. The song comes off the band’s upcoming Soul Descent – March of Death. Due out in March, the album will be released in conjunction with the March of Death European Tour. The tour kicks off on March 14 in Germany and will take the band through Germany, Belgium, Holland, Czech Republic and Poland.
