Killer Be Killed/Antemasque drummer David Elitch has revealed that he will be missing the former’s live debut at this year’s Soundwave Festival due to a scheduling conflict with the latter. He shared the news via Twitter saying:

In his stead will be Converge/Mutoid Man drummer Ben Koller. Killer Be Killed vocalist/guitarist Greg Puciato recently revealed the new in an interview with The Metal Review saying:

“Look I haven’t actually told anyone this yet but Dave is actually not going to play. Ben Koller from Converge is going to play. You’re actually the first person to hear that.

Antemasque confirmed at the same time we did. We didn’t know what day we were going to be on (Soundwave runs two days), and then it just became an issue whether we wanted to still do it or not, which we obviously did. Then it was, if Antemasque have a good slot, if we have a good slot, I didn’t want to shuffle the band around to a shittier time slot just to accommodate Dave playing in both bands. Antemasque for Dave is a much bigger commitment, they’re playing a lot of shows all the time. If he needs to do that, that’s fine with me. Ben from Converge is a fucking animal so it’ll be cool to play with him.”
