Eighteen Visions Announce New Bassist


Veteran Orange County, CA metalcore band Eighteen Visions have added bassist Dan Smith (ex-Day Of Contempt) to their roster. Eighteen Visions‘ December 17th live performance at the annual ‘For The Children‘ fest at The Belasco, in Los Angeles, CA served as his first proper show with the group.

It also marked the outfit’s first live performance was a bassist onstage since the passing of Mick Morris back in 2013. Eighteen Visions took to their social media today, December 21st, to comment on the matter as follows:

“This last Sunday we played For The Children in LA. A toy drive run by SOS Booking and the local hardcore community. What a beautiful thing.

This show was extra special for us. It’s the first time we’ve played with a live bassist since 2007 with the legendary MickDeth.

We had been discussing since last summer the idea of a bassist but it had to be perfect. We’ve always felt Dan Smith would be a great fit if and when we ever wanted to go down that road. Well, here we are. We’ve known Dan for well over 20 years. 18V as well as Throwdown have played countless shows with Dan’s previous bands, mainly Day of Contempt. New vibe for us moving forward and it’s a a great one.
