WARBEAST Parts Ways With Guitarist, Announces Replacement

August 13, 2010

Texas metallers WARBEAST (formerly TEXAS METAL ALLIANCE) have parted ways with guitarist Rick Perry and have replaced him with Bobby Tillotson (a.k.a. "J.R." ).

Commented the band: "We are all parting on good terms and there are no hard feelings between any of us. We LOVE Rick Perry and he will always be our brother and an important part of the WARBEAST history. Rick is part of our WARBEAST family forever!

"There are no specific reasons that this is happening... so don't even bother to ask why. Just certain commitments with careers made this is a mutual decision between all of us. We are all in agreement that this is what's best for WARBEAST at this time.

"We would like to ask all of you to give your appreciation to Rick Perry for his incredible work with WARBEAST. Obviously we wouldn't have gotten this far without him. So please give the man his props and the respect he deserves for his creativity and talents. At the same time we would like all of you to welcome Bobby into the band. No one feels worse about this and has more respect for 'The Governor' than Bobby does. So as we end one memorable chapter... we look forward to what the future brings for WARBEAST. We hope all of you will be behind us as we enter this new chapter of WARBEAST."

A 10-minute trailer for "Krush The Enemy", the debut album from WARBEAST, can be viewed below.

"Krush The Enemy" was released on April 27 via Philip Anselmo's (DOWN, PANTERA) Housecore Records. The record features ten tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row.

WARBEAST features RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt, GAMMACIDE guitarist Scott Shelby, GAMMACIDE/DEVILFIST bassist Alan Bovee and DEMONSEED drummer Joe Gonzalez.
