Bassist Jebb Riley Exits Doomriders


Doomriders bassist/vocalist Jebb Riley has officially stepped down from the group. Chris Johnson of Summoner has taken over his duties in the band with the following statement posted on the matter today, May 16th:

“It’s time to make a bittersweet announcement. Jebb is moving on. He’s our brother and we love him with all our hearts and wish him the best. It’s been an honor making noise with him for over a decade. He’s always going to be a part of this family. We could never find someone to fill his shoes (literally! Size 16!!) but we’d like to proudly welcome Chris Johnson to the band even though he has tiny little baby feet. Some of you have seen him twisting knobs behind the soundboard at our shows or playing with his other band Summoner. Welcome to hell little man. Sorry in advance.

Jebb we love you brother.

Here is a statement from Jebb :

Congratulations to the guys in DOOMRIDERS who are playing shows again.

However, after 12+ years I’m no longer playing with them. I never made an official announcement, but the free Slayer show in April of last year was my last show. I left to focus my time and energy on being with my wife and 2 daughters, and tattooing full time in Portsmouth, NH. It was a hard decision to make, but ultimately a good one. I’m sure I’ll play music again, but right now I’m happy tattooing and being a father. Good luck and thank you to my brothers with whom I was lucky enough to share a stage, van, and many years.

If you want to get in touch with me you can do that here

As for their live plans, the band have a free show with Churchburn and Queen Elephantine booked for June 04th at AS220 in Providence, RI.
