Yesterday it was revealed that Thomas Pridgen (ex-The Mars Volta/Suicidal Tendencies) would be playing drums for Chiodos on The Parks And Devastation Tour. It has been revealed now that Derrick Frost has left the group.

Not only did he leave but, bassist Matt Goddard who will be replaced by Joe Troy (RX Bandits). Says the band: “We are excited and gearing up for The Parks and Devastation Tour that starts on Thursday, September 4th with A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motionless And White. Before we hit the road we have some both exciting and unfortunate news. Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard have both chosen to discontinue touring and recording but instead spend more time with their loved ones and pursue other interests at home.

It’s been a long and great journey with both of these gentleman, Matt dating back to the very beginning, and Derrick a part of three albums with us. We wish them the best in all that they choose to do moving forward. They’ve been long time brothers to us and always will be. Our good friends Thomas Pridgen and Joe Troy are coming to rock with us.

We have been rehearsing like crazy in Michigan so get ready for a great show. We’re very excited to have them join us on this journey as we’ve always been fans of their musicianship. We can’t wait for you all to experience this with us as we continue to tour and write new material. See you at a city near you soon!”
