JUNGLE ROT drummer bows out of the band

JUNGLE ROT drummer finds himself caught in a personal crisis, bows out of the band + new US tour dates w/ LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH and WOE OF TYRANTS

Death metal institution and Napalm recording artists JUNGLE ROT report the following regarding the departure of drummer Eric House: “Eric found himself in a personal crisis that demanded his utmost attention. Therefore, he had no choice but to leave the band. Since then, we have been jamming with our good friend Tony Ochoa [SINDROME, SPEED HATE KILL] behind the kit, and things are sounding great! Tony is a ridiculously hard hitter and will be joining us on the road for the upcoming U.S. tour!”

In other news, JUNGLE ROT will soon be touring the US & Canada in support of the band’s latest album, What Horrors Await, released last year via Napalm Records. Support on this trek will come from Metal Blade recording artists LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH and WOE OF TYRANTS. Comments founding vocalist/guitarist David Matrise: “We are stoked to get back out on the road in the U.S. and Canada! It’s been way too long! We expect to see you at the shows! No excuses! For all the fans in areas of the country we are not visiting on this tour, fret not! We will be doing more extensive touring in the spring after the release of our new album.”
