Fit For An Autopsy Part Ways With Singer, Say They Were “Nate Johnsoned”

Fit For An Autopsy have parted ways with their frontman Nate Johnson and the split doesn’t look to have been on the best of terms. The group said of his departure and subsequent replacement:

“It only took 7 years, but Fit For An Autopsy has inevitably been “Nate Johnsoned”. If you know anything about his past you know that we were left with with out a singer, at the worst possible time.

So with out anymore bullshit or banter, we are happy to welcome Greg Wilburn (oblige, the devastated) to the Fit For An Autopsy team. We will be doing all the tours that have been announced, Including New England Metal and Hardcore fest and all the shows surround it. #natesfuckingoutgregsfuckingin”

As referenced above, Johnson has bounced around in various outfits over the years, having previously spent time in the likes of Through The Eyes Of The Dead, Premonitions Of War and Turmoil.
