Alien Weaponry Announce New Bass Player
New Zealand power trio Alien Weaponry are announcing the departure of bass player Ethan Trembath and the arrival of “good mate” Tūranga Porowini Morgan-Edmonds as his replacement to the lineup.
The band has been riding high in the global metal scene, having played the main stages at a number of the biggest metal festivals in Europe and America during 2018 and 2019. “A world tour that took in 21 countries and spanned seven months was pretty punishing” says singer/guitarist Lewis de Jong. “We played to literally hundreds of thousands of fans, meeting many of them in person and sharing the stage with some of our all time favourite bands like Lamb of God, Gojira and Slayer.”
They made the announcement across social media including an announcement video on Facebook:
The band are currently working on their second album in which Ethan has played a big part. Newcomer Tūranga will also feature on the album, adding his voice to some of the background vocal parts. The band have been tracking vocals ready for mixing and mastering by Hammerhead in their studio in Waipu New Zealand.
The band will be holding a live video Q&A with all four of them at 8.30am Sunday 23 August (Auckland, NZ time) to discuss Ethan’s departure and talk face to face with fans.
