METAL CHURCH Part Ways With Drummer, Announce Replacement
“Due to health complications from years of struggling with diabetes, Kirk Arrington has stepped down as METAL CHURCH‘s drummer. He will be missed and we wish him only the best.
“We are pleased to announce that filling Kirk‘s shoes is the ‘one and only’ Mr. Jeff Plate (SAVATAGE, CHRIS CAFFERY, TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA).
“We are very honored to have a musician of Jeff‘s caliber working with us and we know that he will do a fantastic job in METAL CHURCH.”

METAL CHURCH are currently working on the follow-up to 2004’s “The Weight of the World”, tentatively due later in the year via SPV Records. The band’s current lineup is completed by guitarists Kurdt Vanderhoof and Jay Reynolds (ex-MALICE), vocalist Ronny Munroe (ex-ROTTWEILLER), and bassist Steve Unger. A short European tour is scheduled for June.
