Obituary Drummer Donald Tardy Missing European Dates

Obituary drummer Donald Tardy has been missing the band’s current European dates. During his absence, Lee Harrison (Monstrosity) has been filling in and he had the following to say:

“So tonight will be my fourth show (temporarily) playing drums for the mighty OBITUARY. Donald had some things going on at home that he needed to be there for. I’m honored he called me to fill in, but it was also pretty stressful having to learn the set in such a short time (three days notice). Wishing Donald all the best and he will be back to his spot after this run, so don’t worry. I’m just glad I could be there for him and somewhat pull this off. I’ve got three more shows to do and things will be back to normal for me. Tonight we rock Krakow, Poland!!! Come out if you can!”
