Bassist Dave Klein has officially announced his departure from Black Flag, making it clear that he decided to leave after Ron Reyes was kicked out of the band mid-set on the final night of last year’s Hits and Pits Tour. Here’s what he had to say:
To avoid more PMs after today’s news out of the Black Flag Official camp… I guess I should OFFICIALLY (puns!) say that I’m no longer playing with BF. I suppose the following post from last month wasn’t exactly clear. Now go listen to They Stay Dead and Screeching Weasel. See ya soon at a show near you!
It was announced yesterday that Mike Vallely will be taking over lead vocal duties for Black Flag. The band’s new album What The…, which features Reyes on vocals, was released on December 13th via SST Records.
Dave’s band They Stay Dead plans to re-release their 2011 self-titled EP through Jailhouse Records. The label will also be handling the release a new full-length from the band later this year – click here to check out a new song.
