NEWS: Sacred Mother Tongue reveal their new bassist, Craig Daws!

Rockers Sacred Mother Tongue have announced that Craig Daws will be the band’s new full-time bass player, replacing recently-departed Josh Gurner. A statement from new addition Craig can be read below:

“I’m really excited to be asked to join Sacred Mother Tongue and can’t believe my first show with them is going to be main stage at Download! I saw that Josh had left and they were looking for a replacement from a post on Facebook. I thought I would give it a shot as the music is killer and with the latest release the band are certainly set to go places. I can’t wait to be a part of that ride! I will be bringing my own fingerstyle bass grooves to the mix to complement SMT’s bad ass riffs and melodies.”

Lead singer Darrin also commented, “We had a lot of auditions, many of them really good players and it was a tough decision. Craig’s name kept coming up in our talks right from the start as we’d seen something special in him. He submitted a video play through of ‘Bleeding Out’ and it just blew us away. He’s such a dominant player, stands his ground and holds a really fat groove that’s bursting with tone and feel, and he’s jaw-droppingly tight! There’s a lot to be said for a musician that’s completely in charge of his instrument and he’s exactly what we needed. Furthermore, Craig is an awesome guy and we get on great – it’s really important for our new bass player to become our brother. He’s a welcome addition to the family and I’m sure people will love him. We’re really excited to get on stage with him and present the new Sacred line-up in full force.”

The new Sacred Mother Tongue line-up will be debuted at this year’s Download Festival, which takes place next weekend. The band will be opening the main stage on the Sunday.
