Press ReleaseChiodos kick off The Parks & Devastation Tour with A Day to Remember, Bring Me the Horizon and Motionless in (tour dates below). Chiodos band members Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard have decided to leave Chiodos to pursue personal interests. The departure is amicable and the band will continue to tour in support of their latest release DEVIL. The band will add two new members - Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta, Suicidal Tendencies, Trash Talk and The Memorials) on Drums and Joe Troy (RX Bandits) on Bass.
The band adds, “We are excited and gearing up for The Parks and Devastation Tour that starts on Thursday, September 4th with A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motionless And White. Before we hit the road we have some both exciting and unfortunate news. 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. 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!”

The entire history of Chiodos would suggest otherwise, but best of luck to the two departing dudes.

I guess this is just going to be routine with Chiodos.

Thomas Erak + Thomas Pridgen+ Joe Troy really, really makes me think that they could be moving towards a more... experimental sound musically.

This would be an exciting new group if the music out wasn't so bland and they changed the name.

What original member are left? Craig and keyboard guy?

I believe their other guitar player is a founding member as well.

I hope not, but I wouldn't be super surprised if the reunion just didn't work out

Wow. I really wish I could afford tickets to this tour. Did not like Devil but christ, this is a lineup. If they could fit Nick Martin in here it'd be awesome.
