Planet Mosh’s very own Sty has joined Manchester Punk / Hardcore unit Eye Licker as their new bass player. He’ll be taking over the reigns from Rob, who is moving on to vocals to replace current vocalist Paul.
Paul has reluctantly made the very difficult decision to leave the band to concentrate more on family and work, and although this is a very sad time for Eye Licker considering the length of time Paul has been in the band, it also shows exciting times head with the new 2020 line-up.
Sty said, ‘To be a fan of a band and then join them is so special for me. I’ve smirked a few times in practise and thought to myself, This is Eye Licker, how ace is this!! Now I know how Chris “Izzy” Cole felt!!!’
The band will commence gigging with the new line-up in February, starting in Warrington on 22nd at The Royal Oak Branch. 2020 should prove to be a busy year for the band with dates in the North East, Scotland and possibly Poland again, together with another studio recording.
