Left To Die is the new band featuring guitarist and vocalist Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Gruesome), guitarist Rick Rozz (ex-Death), bassist Terry Butler (Obituary, ex-Death), and drummer Gus Rios (Gruesome). Left To Die is currently working on their debut EP, and will hit the road this summer to play Death's 1988 album Leprosy album in its entirety along with songs from Scream Bloody Gore.
"After the recent Chuck Tribute shows that Matt, Gus, and myself did, Rick posed the question 'Would anyone would want to see some Leprosy shows?' With a resounding 'yes!' the masses had spoken," said Butler. "Matt & Gus threw their hats in immediately and in my opinion they were the only real choice to bring this thing to life !! Left To Die coming your way soon !!"
"It's going to be an absolute honor and pleasure to play these 34+ year-old songs on stage with Terry after all these years, along with the talents of Matt and Gus – it's gonna be brutal!" added Rozz.
Butler, Rios, and Harvey all recently participated in a Death tribute show. The trio, alongside ex-Death guitarist James Murphy, performed as Living Monstrosity alongside a handful of other ex-Death members. You can check out fan-filmed footage of Living Monstrosity doing their thing below.
