Chiodos Announces New Bassist and Drummer

Chiodos' New MembersChiodos has filled out their lineup after announcing that drummer Derrick Frost and founding bassist Matt Goddard left the band to pursue personal interests. The group, who are on tour in support of their latest album DEVIL, have added drummer Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta, Suicidal Tendencies) and bassist Joe Troy (RX Bandits) to the fold.

“Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard have both chosen to discontinue touring and recording but instead spend more time with their loved ones and pursue other interests at home,” the band wrote in a statement. “It’s been a long and great journey with both of these gentleman, Matt dating back to the very beginning, and Derrick a part of three albums with us. We wish them the best in all that they choose to do moving forward. They’ve been long time brothers to us and always will be. Our good friends Thomas Pridgen and Joe Troy are coming to rock with us. We have been rehearsing like crazy in Michigan so get ready for a great show. We’re very excited to have them join us on this journey as we’ve always been fans of their musicianship. We can’t wait for you all to experience this with us as we continue to tour and write new material. See you at a city near you soon!”
