Eoghain Wynne has made the decision to step down from bass duties and Pavol Rosa (also of Soothsayer and Zhi Ren) has stepped up to complete the lineup for what looks to be a very busy 2019.
A statement released by the band:
“We are delighted to welcome Pavol Rosa (also of Soothsayer and Zhi Ren) as our new bass Slug. He has spilled blood for the Slug already at the Siege of Limerick, he played MetalDays 2018 with us and did an incredible job, his work ethic is unreal and he can be powered for 3 days on one cup of sparkling water – Pavol was the only choice for us all as Eoghain’s successor on bass. Tunes are up to speed, new tunes are ready to go and we’re looking forward to hitting the road together and seeing what 2019 brings!”
Hard at work on the follow-up to 2017’s “Blood and Slime“, Ten Ton Slug embark on a short run of UK shows in late March with shows in Edinburgh (Bannermans, March 20th), an appearance at Hammerfest in Wales (Friday March 22nd) and a London headline show in the Big Red in Holloway (March 23rd).
The Slug has also been announced as one of the main stage opening bands at Metaldays 2019 in Slovenia in July and are currently working on securing European dates around this appearance. A prominent slot at HRH Doom vs Stoner in Sheffield in September has also been announced, with more festival slots secured but under wraps for the minute.
Expect to hear new material off the next release on the road from March as the Slug slowly treks across Ireland, the UK and Europe.
