Dan Beiers Leaves Khemmis
Doom metal outfit Khemmis has announced that they have parted ways with founding bassist Dan Beiers. They made the announcement on Facebook ahead of an upcoming live stream for Decibel Magazine.
“With our impending appearance at the Decibel 200th issue anniversary event, it is time that we let you know that we parted ways with founding member and bassist Dan Beiers in December,” they wrote. “The events of the last year forced us all to reexamine our lives, our capacities to manage our individual mental and physical health, and the state of our relationships both inside and outside of Khemmis. This decision was the result of that period of reflection and some difficult conversations among the four of us as well as with our loved ones. We are eternally grateful for his contributions and friendship over the years, and we wish him and his family the very best wherever their path leads them next.”
Khemmis has released three studio albums with two EPs, including last year’s Doomed Heavy Metal. They entered the studio this past January to record their fourth album. The band confirmed Beiers is not on the upcoming release, and they have not announced a new member.
