South Florida’s ABIOTIC have a busy summer touring schedule ahead, beginning with an opening slot on The Summer Slaughter Tour in Lake Buena Vista, FL before meeting up with Wretched, Allegaeon, and Rivers of Nihil for tour dates throughout August. Joining the band as their new drummer will be Aaron Stechauner, who has come in to replace Andres Hurtado. The band has spent the last few weeks rehearsing, and have a released a video of Stechauner performing The Graze of Locusts on youtube.com/abioticvideo.
Aaron Stechauner comments on joining ABIOTIC: “I’m excited beyond belief to have joined Abiotic. From the beginning everyone was extremely welcoming and jamming, as well as writing, has gone smoother than I ever could have hoped. I can’t wait to continue on with this family and I’m sure that I am as enthusiastic as the rest of the guys are to share what we have planned to bring to our live and studio performances.”
Additional dates for this Fall have also been announced. ABIOTIC will be supporting death metal legends, Dying Fetus, from October 4th-November 2nd.
