Bassist Derek Engemann has exited Cattle Decapitation. He posted the following on Facebook:

“It’s been a great journey, but I’m writing to let everyone know I have amicably parted ways with Cattle Decapitation. I’m very proud of the success we achieved together across the last two albums. In turn, I’m excited to focus my energy on the next upcoming Scour release, my reignited project Cast the Stone (HUGE news in the coming days), and the other big plans I have in the works. Thank you to everyone for the support, and I’ll see you at NAMM!”

Cattle Decapitation Share European Tour Documentary

Cattle Decapitation have posted a new documentary focusing on their summer European tour. Check that out below:

Josh Elmore commented:

“For several years now, fans have been asking the band to release a video chronicle with live performance footage and enhanced or ‘behind the scenes’ documentation. During a recent European run, our friend Paul McGuire of Obscenery Films traveled with the band and captured glimpses of what day-to-day life on the road is like for Cattle Decapitation and spoke with the members as they reflected on years of touring and what their future holds.

The result is an entertaining, humorous and informative documentary that shows the band as a live entity and also what goes on during their down time on tour; play-throughs, interviews, concert chaos, Euro-tourism and more. We hope you enjoy it!”
