Alien Ant Farm Guitarist Leaves Band

Contributed by LambChop:

Alien Ant Farm and guitarist Terry Corso have parted ways, citing "irreconcilable differences." The band – Dryden Mitchell (vocals) Tye Zamora (bass) and Mike Cosgrove (drums) – will be performing Wednesday night (Oct. 29) at Boutwell Auditorium in Birmingham, Ala., with substitute guitarist Victor Camacho.

Mindful of not wanting to miss a date of their current tour with 311, the AAF parties orchestrated this rock divorce to fall between shows. Corso departed after a show in Columbus, Ohio, and Camacho, an old friend of the band, was imported on the off days so he could rehearse and be ready to rock by the date in Birmingham. Fortunately, he already knew most of the material. For further developments, check www.alienantfarm.com.

Alien Ant Farm On The Sophomore Slump

Hip Online recently caught up with Alien Ant Farm's singer Dryden Mitchell and asked about the sophomore slump in conjunction with the release of 'Truant'. "I mean some bands have it and some don't and some bands have freshman slumps," Mitchell said. "We fortunately didn't. I have a ton of friends who are in bands, not like we got huge success, but they never received anything. Sophomore slump is a great thing just because we had an opportunity to do a sophomore record." Check out the entire interview here.
