This is almost as bad as Textures loosing their vocalist. I'm not sure if either band will bounce back.

It sounds to me like this was known ahead of time considering the tour starts TOMORROW. I was considering going to see this tour just for Augury but now I'm not so sure.

I posted that Pete Wentz was leaving Fall Out Boy before anybody, then it randomly got deleted in favor of one with redundant information and an opinion on the end. So I guess it's just that I got this post.

Lead vocalist/guitarist has a pretty cool side-project but I don't know how well the band will be able to bounce back from this.

Met Forest at one of the shows I went to. Great guy. This will suck, but there are a lot of capable bassists out there.

Well, he's alive, I'm happy about that. From the way it was worded, it sounded like he died or something.

Never listened to Opeth or Dan Swano?

The name of the side-project is Humanoid. It is very far from Death Metal, but it is very interesting nonetheless. Very progressive, little acoustic and ambient sections as well.

Nothing real progressive about Atheist, but I would throw in the early works of Sean Malone in there as well.

sucks

But he wasn't the main songwriter, they'll still be awesome even if the bass isn't as mindfuckingly good.

Pretty strange thing to be sarcastic of...

So we are supposed to assume that all progressive death metal acts are required to have stand-out bassists?
