Chimaira’s original lineup, including Mark Hunter, Rob Arnold, Matt DeVries, Jim LaMarca, Andols Herrick, and Chris Spicuzza, were supposed to reunite for a show at the Agora Theatre in Cleveland, OH on December 30, but now it appears Herrick will be missing the performance due to his “debilitating health.” Austin D’Amond (DevilDriver), who has served as the band’s drummer before, will be filling in. Chimaira commented:

“We are extremely disappointed to report that as a result of debilitating health, Andols Herrick is unable to perform at this year’s Christmas show. We are fortunate and grateful, however, that Chimaira veteran Austin D’Amond will step up to command the absent throne. Our sincerest apologies are in order for the disruption, but we are confident the night will absolutely crush.”

Matt DeVries Discusses His Departure From Fear Factory

Here’s his full statement:

“For those that haven’t already heard, I’ve decided to step down as bass player of Fear Factory. The main reason being to simply take some time off of the road and focus on my kids.

I couldn’t think of anyone better to take my place then Tony (Campos). He’s a good friend and great bass player!

Thank you to all Fear Factory fans. You guys have been amazing and made the past three years a blast! Thank you as well to Dino, Burt, and Mike for a great ride, and some memorable / incredible shows! None of which could have happened without our amazing road crew, Wedge, Jerry, Justin, Sarah… you guys rule!

Music is my passion, so this won’t be the last time you see me.”

Fear Factory have since commented on the departure as well:

“We’re really sad to see Matt Devries go, but we totally respect his decision. The past 3 plus years have been beyond amazing. We’ve known Matt for a very long time and we’ve gone through allot together so we will always be friends.

We wish him the best of luck on his future endeavors.
