Exhumed Welcome Noisem’s Sebastian Phillips As A Full-Time Member


Exhumed have officially welcomed guitarist Sebastian Phillips to their ranks as a full-time member. His addition follows the departure of guitarist Bud Burke. Exhumed vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey said of the lineup switch:

“We’re super psyched to bring Baz into the fold. Anyone that’s seen us since ‘Death Revenge‘ came out can attest that he’s killed it on the last few tours, and we couldn’t ask for a better fit.”

Phillips himself added:

“It’s been blast so far and since the first tour I did with Exhumed, it just felt comfortable. I’d been a fan for a long time and getting to know them, I found out that we all come from the same hard rock and nasty fast extreme metal backgrounds, so it just made sense.”

Meanwhile, Harvey also addressed Burke‘s departure, stating “Bud simply wasn’t available for touring as much as we needed him to be, it was that simple. He and I have been friends for years, and we both understood that this move made sense for the band – there were no hard feelings whatsoever.”

Harvey also spoke of the band’s future plans for new material, offering “We’re definitely going back to into the studio next year. We have a ton of material that’s shaping up to be really aggressive, and we’re pumped to get Baz contributing to the writing and recording side of things as well!”
