Eighteen Visions Enlist Stick To Your Guns Guitarist For Live Shows, Will Not Replace Late Bassist


Eighteen Visions have enlisted Stick To Your Guns guitarist Josh James as their live touring guitarist for the time being. If you were paying close attention, you probably noticed that James recently appeared in the band’s video for “The Oath“. The band’s previous guitarist Ken Floyd was unable to commit to the band due to his job tour managing Zedd.

In other news, the group won’t be recruiting a live replacement for their late bassist Mick Morris, who died back in 2013 due to a pre-existing heart condition. Guitarist Keith Barney told Exclaim!:

“We decided on not having a bass player and running bass tracks, as kind of an ode, an homage, to Mick. We just set up bass gear, set up a bass and have a little candle — we purposely leave that as an empty space.”

The band are due to play their first reunion show tomorrow, June 02nd, at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA. Their new album “XVIII” will see a release tomorrow as well.
