In the beginning of 2006, Atheist announced they were regrouping to perform live during the summer and fall of 2006. The line-up will be Schaefer, Burkey, Choy and Flynn. Shaefer will be only handling vocals due to long battles with tendonitis and carpal tunnel. Gnostic guitarist Sonny Carson will be handling all of Shaefers guitar duties. Recently Chris Baker of Gnostic has been filling in for Burkey because of legal troubles. « hide
