February 14, 2016, 3 years ago
Single Bullet Theory, led by former Pissing Razors guitarist Matt DiFabio, have checked in with the following update:
Single Bullet Theory is extremely happy to announce the return of long time bassist Bill Mez to the fold. This has been a very long time coming and we are really looking forward to getting back out on the road with good ole' Thunderfoot holding up the low end.
Mez joined SBT in the winter of 2001 after a stint with Seven Witches and went on to record four of the band's first releases, appeared in two internationally distributed videos, one DVD, and a 'rare' compilation disc that was released in 2013. Mez also spent plenty of time down in the trenches as the band gained its momentum through relentless national touring. Including runs with King Diamond, Hypocrisy, Amorphis and Pissing Razors as well as hundreds of shows headlining.
With the addition of original drummer Johnny Sasso, the nucleus of the hardest working era of SBT is back in action. We cannot wait to see what we have in store next. Shows will be announced just as soon as we blow the cobwebs off and get back to being the well oiled machine that we are known to be. Time to work!"
Mez has issued the following statement:
"It was around 8 years ago when I put down the bass to focus on getting my life together after years of struggling to achieve big things in this very dear niche of the music industry we call metal. It was in no way an easy decision at the time and it has haunted me at various times since. Watching other bands on stage and especially SBT, I could never completely put behind me the emotions I felt about wanting to be up there again. I picked up the bass a few years ago for a one-off show with the band and have since been working on some new tunes for Matt's side project, The Killing Truth. Things have settled down for me recently and it just feels like a natural time to get back into the swing of things and fulfill this need which drove me for so many years. I am so grateful for the opportunity and cannot wait to tear some shit up. I guess the arena is calling my name..."
