MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist David Vincent has released the following statement:
“I am aware of Trey Azagthoth’s [MORBID ANGEL guitarist] announcement of a collaboration with Steve Tucker on new music. However, the inference that I have left MORBID ANGEL is incorrect. To be clear, I have not left MORBID ANGEL nor have I been asked to do so.”
Azagthoth released a statement earlier today saying that he was “excited to announce that Steve Tucker and I are working together again for MORBID ANGEL and the next record will certainly be an amazingly sick World Beater!”
Tucker added in post on his Facebook page: “Yes! It is true. I am happy to announce that Trey and I are both stoked to be making music together, again?! Thank you for all of the great messages of support that I have received! To the haters, suck it!!! Again!”
Drummer Tim Yeung confirmed his exit from MORBID ANGEL earlier today, explaining in a statement: “There have been some lineup changes with MORBID ANGEL. Unfortunately, due to financial differences, I will not be continuing with [the band]… I wish Trey and MORBID ANGEL all the best. As for myself, I’m always up for the next opportunity life throws my way.”
