“ANNOUNCEMENT! If you’ve seen us in the past year, you may have noticed a new guy holding down the low end on stage. We’d like to officially welcome Adrian Oropeza to After The Burial.

If you’ve ever had the chance to talk to Adrian, you’d know that he is one of the most chill people you’ve ever met. He’s a great player, and his hard work ethic and positive attitude are values that we’ve carried since day one of ATB.

Everyone give him a warm welcome, and congratulations!!”

Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris, I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon A Burning Body, & Bad Omens Set For “10 Years In The Black” Tour

Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris, I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon A Burning Body, and Bad Omens will be heading out on the “10 Years In The Black” tour together later this year. This trek is the latest in Sumerian Records’ ongoing 10th anniversary celebration.


Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria) said the following:

“Not only is this our first true North American headlining tour in two years, as well as our first real U.S. headliner with Denis [Stoff] as our vocalist, but this is also a tour celebrating the incredible 10 year journey of Sumerian Records. We couldn’t be more proud to headline such a pivotal tour package and to celebrate the music Sumerian has released. The tour will include our biggest production to date and the first trek out in support of our new album, ‘The Black‘. This is going to be something incredibly special.”

Sumerian Records, etc. founder Ash Avildsen also added:

“To see the celebration of a decade of Sumerian culminate with this tour is a true reflection of the communal spirit and vision that this label was built upon,. Fans will get to see five headliners all go out together, which is very rare these days because of tour politics, egos, money and everything else that gets in the way of giving music lovers an unforgettable line-up.

The fact that these five bands are sharing the stage together and still bringing an opening act to kick off the show makes this a truly special tour. I commend them all. Stay tuned for for lots of upcoming announcements about different activities for bands and fans to interact at at these shows that go beyond just watching them perform on stage. Mark my words: This will be the most progressive and interactive tour we have ever done. See you on the road.”

Lee Foral Exits After The Burial

After previously missing the band’s past few tours, Lee Foral has officially exited After The Burial. The bassist left the group to focus on his family life.


After The Burial said the following:

“As some of you may know, the last few tours have been without our bassist Lee. A year ago he was gifted with a baby boy, and that has understandably been his number one priority.

We are sad to break the news that he will no longer be playing with us, but at the same time are happy that he’s taken the role of a father. We’ll always cherish the times we had together, the music we made, and the friendship that we still share. We wish him nothing but the best!”
