Allegaeon bassist quitting, band seeks replacement
Corey Archuleta, bass player and original member of Colorado metal act Allegaeon, will exit the band following their forthcoming tour. Archuleta has issued this statement:
"After eight years with Allegaeon, my time has come to move on to pursue other interests and dreams. This decision didn't happen overnight; it has been on my mind for some time. I have learned an immeasurable amount about music, the world, people, and myself, having this experience. It has led me to a sick interest in the law, and hopefully practicing it someday. I am excited for another bass player to take over, and offer something new to the ever-expanding progression of Allegaeon. "One hundred metric tons of thanks to the Allegaeon guys, both present and past, Metal Blade Records, Extreme Management Group, Inc. and Circle Talent Agency. "Most importantly, you, the person that bought a CD, shirt, ticket, gave us a place to sleep, shower…you deserve the biggest of thanks. Being in a band isn't easy, whether it be financially, physically, or mentally. But the fans kept me, and the band, moving forward. The Winter Warriors Tour featuring Battlecross, and Necromancing the Stone, will be my last run. As far as a final Colorado date, TBA, maybe. "If you are interested in being the new bass player, please email email@example.com. You'll receive an auto-reply with instructions (Gmail users, make sure to check the "Updates" folder for the auto-reply). I'll be reviewing the material once you have submitted them."
