Unearth will be rejoined by drummer Derek Kerswill for a one-off show in tribute to former band bassist Chris “Rover” Rybicki, who passed away at the hands of an alleged drunk driver this past September. The show will take place at Saint Michaels Hall in Lynn, MA on February 19th with the band offering the following on it:
“In an effort to keep the focus on recording our new album and to show everyone that we are still indeed friends with our former drummer Derek Kerswill and that our split was solely because of “creative differences”, we have decided that he is the best fit to play drums for us at Roverfest this Saturday night.
Both the band and Derek agree that this was the best way to end our chapter together while also paying tribute to our fallen friend and former bassist Chris “Rover” Rybicki. So if you are attending the show on Saturday at St. Michaels Hall in Lynn, you will get a chance to see our last gig with Kerswill…”
