Santa Cruz CA’s tech-death masters, DECREPIT BIRTH, have been rejoined by original bassist Derek Boyer (SUFFOCATION). Boyer will continue as a fulltime member of Suffocation as well but will now be apart of not one, but two of the most uncompromising and innovative bands within the extreme metal genre!
Guitarist Matt Sotelo commented: "We are very proud to announce that bassist Derek Boyer is returning to the full time Decrepit Birth line up! Derek was a very strong force on our debut album, and his skills have only improved over the past years as the bassist for the mighty Suffocation. Having Derek back in the band is a really exciting situation for us, because he brings so much to the table and is one of our best friends. Come check out Derek on tour with us during February and March with KATAKLYSM, ALL SHALL PERISH, CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE and ABYSMAL DAWN, throughout the US and Canada! We would also like to thank Joel Horner for his years in the band. Joel decided to leave on positive terms due to personal decisions. We remain close friends with him, and wish him the best of luck!"
