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.
“I’ve been waiting to break the news for a while about this. Now seems like the proper time to do so. As some of you know, there have been some lineup changes with MORBID ANGEL. Unfortunately, due to financial differences, I will not be continuing with them.
It has been a great five years being involved with MORBID ANGEL. I’ve met a ton of great people all over the world, played some amazing shows, and have a ton of great memories as well as stories.
I wish Trey [Azagthoth, guitar] and MORBID ANGEL all the best. As for myself, I’m always up for the next opportunity life throws my way.”
On the other hand, Trey has announced that he’s been working with former member Steve Stucker for Morbid Angel, even though David Vincent has publicly announced that he hasn’t left the band or been asked to do so.
“I’m excited to announce that Steve Tucker and I are working together again for MORBID ANGEL and the next record will certainly be an amazingly sick World Beater!”
While Steve Tucker posted:
“Lately I have been talking to a good old friend that I haven’t had the chance to speak with in years. It’s been great! Now it seems I will be a very busy man in the coming months. More news to come!”
