Black Tusk to go ahead with BLS support tour

Posted by AP on 11/12/14

Despite the recent passing of bassist/vocalist Jonathan Athon, Black Tusk have confirmed that they will be embarking on a European tour in support of Black Label Society next year, with Corey Barhorst (ex-Kylesa) tapped as a temporary session bassist. The band released the following statement regarding the decision:

It’s been an incredibly trying time for us over the past month and we want to thank everyone for their support. We had confirmed the tour with Black Label Society and finished the new album before Athon‘s accident and Athon, specifically, had been very excited about the opportunity to tour with BLS and we feel there’s no way he’d want things to end on this note. Corey Barhorst, formerly of Kylesa and currently of Niche, will be stepping in for Athon for the time being. All of us go back over 10 years andCorey seemed the natural choice to carry on for Athon.
