DIRGE WITHIN Announces New Partnership / New Lead Guitarist
“Myself and the rest of the guys in DW are very excited about this new chapter in the DW story, as well as our new partnership with Rocket Science Music. It seemed like a perfect fit, and I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together in this new endeavor.” states says DIRGE WITHIN front man Jeremy Genske. “It’s gonna be a whole new ride. New team, new atmosphere, and a new vibe. Get ready!”
The band is also announcing the departure of lead guitar player Matt Szlachta, who parted ways with the band in October to continue focus on his passion for teaching guitar to his students and for other personal reasons. “There’s no bad blood at all, man. We’re all still good buds and very close. His head and heart just weren’t in it anymore, and he wanted to go back to teaching. He really loves it, and that’s where he felt he had to be,” states Jeremy.
With the departure of Szlachta, the band have added in a lead guitar player, Chuck Wepfer, who will make his debut on the new release. Check out a video of Chuck below:
