SOURVEIN: Original Bass Player To Rejoin Lineup

Cape Fear sludge kings, SOURVEIN, are excited to announce the return of original bassist, Joshua ''JC Fari" Crapo, who played with the band from 1993 - 2001 and again from 2003 - 2006. Fari held down the low-end duties on both SOURVEIN's self-titled full-length and the 'He's No Good To Me Dead' compilation (featuring SOURVEIN alongside Grief, Bongzilla, Negative Reaction and Subsanity) among other compilations as well as the 'Will To Mangle' demos. Fari also played guitar on the band's split with Buzzov*en in 1995.

Fari relocated to Austin after Hurricane Katrina flooded his New Orleans apartment and studio in 2005 and left the band in 2006, following a successful tour of the UK with Remesses, to focus on his family. Since then, he's been raising his son and working as a recording engineer. As of this summer, Fari is finally able to commit to touring and recording with SOURVEIN full time.

Fari will join vocalist T-Roy and co. for the band's West Coast leg of the 'Black Fangs' world tour in October.

The SOURVEIN collective wishes to extend its gratitude to Ahmasi O'Daniel (The Misanthrone Project) and Dave Sherman (Earthride, ex-Wretched, ex-Spirit Caravan) filling in on bast the past few tours.

'Black Fangs' was released via Candlelight Records on June 21.
