Joe Trevisano, bass player of California based Death Metallers AUTOPSY has left the band. Here’s the band’s official statement about the split: “Surreal as it is, our long time bass player and friend Joe Trevisano has left the band. Joe has been making records and kicking ass on stage all over the world with us for the entire chapter two of AUTOPSY going back to 2008. And before that he was in ABSCESS going back to 1997, and even before that… we knew Joe from the local scene around 1991 when he was in VON, so we have a long history together. Let it be known the split is on good terms. Joe has decided to shift his focus to his family and we support him on this 100% and will always consider him part of the AUTOPSY gang. In the meantime fear not, AUTOPSY will continue to forge ahead and we will keep you all posted on developments. We are not done crushing your skulls yet, so consider yourselves warned.” For more AUTOPSY information and regular updates please visit www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100050176223094
