Bolt Thrower fans may be in for a welcome surprise as one of the greatest death metal bands to have ever walked this earth have teased new music(!) via their website.
In recognition of what would have been Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns 40th birthday (RIP), the following statement has been made….make of it what you will but surely something ‘new’ is on the horizon.
“Today (7th March 2017) would have been Kiddie’s 40th Birthday, it’s a day of sadness, but also of great memories, and we hope you’ll join us and raise a glass to an absent friend.
We take comfort in the knowledge that his bloodline, and legacy as a father, will live on through his sons Leon and Max, his legacy as a man lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone who had the honour and privilege to call him their friend, and his legacy as an amazing drummer will live on through his music.
But sadly due to various circumstances, Kiddie only ever got to release 2 albums with Bolt Thrower, despite being in the band for 20 years and playing hundreds of shows, and we owe his unswerving loyalty and drumming legacy so much more.
This is a debt we’ll start to pay off soon…
Here’s to you Kiddie!
