Texas instrumental act Scale the Summit were one of those bands that I never expected to change much in terms of lineup, but apparently it just happened. Bassist Jordan Eberhardt decided to leave the band. Says guitarist Chris Letchford:

“We are also proud to announce Mark Michell (Tetrafusion) as our new full time bassist. Jordan decided earlier in the year he no longer wanted to tour full time so we have decided to part ways. We have had great luck having all original members for the past 3 full lengths and over 6 years! We wish him the best and are really excited to see what Mark brings to the band!”

Any band shakeup has clear potential for bad news, but before you get too upset, you should check out his replacement: Mark Mitchell of Tetrafusion.

So clearly, Scale the Summit’s low end is in more than capable hands. I ain’t even mad.

On top of this news, the band has announced their second headlining tour for this year, Adventure Metal Across America, alongside Today I Caught The Plague. I had always sort of referred to Scale The Summit as adventure music (I spent hours on World of Warcraft and Minecraft to their tunes when I had more time to play games), so it’s a fitting tour name as any. Good to see them embracing their adventure metal spirit! Dates for the trek are available after the jump!
