LOCK UP Bassist Shane Embury To Miss European Tour; DAN LILKER Steps In For 10-Day Trek
January 28, 2013, 2 years ago
International grindcore supergroup LOCK UP - featuring Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR), Anton Reisenegger (PENTAGRAM CHILE, CRIMINAL), Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA, VENOMOUS CONCEPT) and Nick Barker (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, ex-DIMMU BORGIR) - have confirmed that bassist Embury will be unable to join the band on their upcoming European tour.
Says the band: "Shane will unfortunately miss the upcoming Lock Up tour next month due to conflicting schedules with Napalm Death. Our very good friend and brother in grind, not to mention all round metal legend Mr. Dan Lilker (S.O.D., NUCLEAR ASSAULT, BRUTAL TRUTH) will be handling bass duties on the 10-day trek.
Of course we're gutted Shane can't make the tour but we fully understand Napalm is his #1 priority and sometimes these things can't be avoided. Rather than cancel the tour we decided (with Shane's blessing) to call on the services of Mr/ Lilker again, who is no stranger to Lock Up as he stepped in for Shane on the US tour last year with GOATWHORE and STRONG INTENTION."
