Morbid Angel and Revocation line up changes @morbidangelband @revocation

Metal Injection wanted to get to the bottom of the Revocation line up rumor and reached out to Phil about whether or not he was parting ways with the band. This is the statement he gave them

It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing I will be leaving Revocation. This was by far the most difficult decision I’ve ever made in my life, but after much soul searching I’ve decided that it is no longer the right path for me, so I will be moving forward to pursue new musical projects. I remain close friends with my brothers in the band, and support them 100% in all their future endeavors. I know such a talented group of guys will have a long and prosperous career, and I look forward to watching Revocation continue to grow and evolve.

I look back on my time with Revocation with nothing but fond memories, and feel incredibly lucky to have been part of something so special. I would like to thank the enormous amount of people who have helped us over the years: from everyone we’ve worked with at Relapse and Metal Blade, to our manager Shawn Carrano and our booking agent Dan Rozenblum, to all the amazing bands we’ve toured with over the years, and to our very supportive families who have been with us all the way through this incredible journey. Most of all I would like to thank all of our amazing fans that have made our career in music possible. To everyone who has ever picked up a record, come out to a show, bought a t-shirt, and even taken us into their homes when we didn’t have a place to stay, thank you all so much for helping us turn our dreams into a reality. I’m humbled and moved beyond words knowing that what we started in my parents dining room when we were 14 years old has resonated with so many people and allowed us to travel the world sharing our passion. I look forward to continuing my career in music and can’t wait to get back out playing shows, see you all on the road with whatever comes next!

-Phil

In other line up change news Morbid Angel has just lost drummer Tim, and founding Morbid Angel bassist and vocalist David Vincent is leaving the band

Tim Yeung has officially left MORBID ANGEL, five years after he joined the band as the replacement for the group’s longtime drummer, Pedro “Pete” Sandoval. No information on who the new drummer will be but rumor is that the band will be reuniting with Steve Tucker.  Now from what i have seen so far via twitter and facebook. Not many people are happy with David leaving the band and having Steve come back. But there are still plenty of mixed reactions   Now i am just paraphrasing here but  such quotes  as
” Guys, Steve Tucker’s last record was terrible and Trey hasn’t delivered a good Morbid Angel album in 15 years.”

“I’m psyched that Morbid Angel reunited w/ Steve Tucker. Formulas and Gateways are both great albums & Heretic isn’t as bad as people say.”
and of course “Aww this means David Vincent will stop favouriting my tweets every time I mention Morbid Angel.”
So i guess only time will tell.
