AGAINST THE PLAGUES Parts Ways With Guitarist, Announces Replacement

January 16, 2014

Chicago-based multinational extreme act AGAINST THE PLAGUES has parted ways with guitarist Marco Martell "due to his personal obligations" and has replaced him with Aaron Covarrubias (pictured; ex-EBONMORTIS, UNSPOKEN FEAR).

Says the band: "We wish Marco nothing but the best with his future and thank him for all his hard work and tremendous contributions to AGAINST THE PLAGUES."

Regarding the recent events in the AGAINST THE PLAGUES camp and the group's future plans, the band states: "Last year has brought AGAINST THE PLAGUES a lot of new experiences and also some unexpected events.

"We released a new album 'The Quaternion' and received amazing reviews, played series of killer promotional/album release shows, we increased the number of fans, we met with new promoters etc. On the other hand, we had some lineup changes, practice-room changes and few more tough decisions we were forced to deal with.

"We have emerged a much stronger and dedicated group at the end of it all.

"2014 will be a new chapter in the history of the band.

"We have done a lot of work to get ourselves to the point where we are able to begin working on new music, new video, new merchandise and a killer new live shows.

"It will require unquestionable reliability, dedication, input, and most important — a mutual sense that we are in this together."
