Everyone's Replaceable

Today in Resignation Letters: Phil McSorley Leaves Cobalt, Bob Bagchus Leaves Asphyx

  • Axl Rosenberg

Bagchus and McSorleySorry, kids, but some of your most favoritist members from two of your most favoritist bands may no longer be in those bands. Specifically:

  • Last year, Phil McSorley told Decibel that Cobalt would finally begin work on their follow-up to 2009’s critically acclaimed Gin following their Spring 2013 tour. I dunno what happened with that, but I guess it’s a moot point, ’cause the band posted this message on their Facebook page late last night:Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 10.22.10 AMI can’t really imagine Wunder continuing Cobalt without McSorley, but I guess we’ll see what happens. In any case, Gin was certainly a high note on which to go out, no?
  • Meanwhile, Asphyx’s Bob Bagchus (I always wanna type “Bob Bacchus”) is also moving on. Says that band via their Facebook page:Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 10.23.45 AMWho picks their family over death metal? What a loser! All kidding aside, I’m mostly just glad that the band hired another drummer whose last name will constantly remind me of a different phrase altogether… in this case, I shall forever be tempted to type “Stefan Hüsker Dü.” Thank God for small victories.

As of this writing, no one else has left any other bands. That I know of.
