Chiodos are set to tour the UK this November with The Blackout (dates below). But before that they are on the road for The Parks and Devastation Tour over in the US. The tour includes A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motionless And White.
With good news comes bad news as Chiodos band members Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard have decided to leave Chiodos to pursue personal interests. The departure is amicable and the band will continue to tour in support of their latest release ‘DEVIL’. The band will add two new members – Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta, Suicidal Tendencies, Trash Talk and The Memorials) on Drums and Joe Troy (RX Bandits) on Bass.
The band tell us in a recent statement: “We are excited and gearing up for The Parks and Devastation Tour that started on Thursday, September 4th with A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motionless And White. Before we hit the road we have some both exciting and unfortunate news. Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard have both chosen to discontinue touring and recording but instead spend more time with their loved ones and pursue other interests at home. It’s been a long and great journey with both of these gentleman, Matt dating back to the very beginning, and Derrick a part of three albums with us. We wish them the best in all that they choose to do moving forward. They’ve been long time brothers to us and always will be. Our good friends Thomas Pridgen and Joe Troy are coming to rock with us. We have been rehearsing like crazy in Michigan so get ready for a great show. We’re very excited to have them join us on this journey as we’ve always been fans of their musicianship. We can’t wait for you all to experience this with us as we continue to tour and write new material. See you at a city near you soon!”
