Well, it looks like Black Flag’s 2014 full of good news has already come to an end and it’s only been two days.
Yesterday, bassist David Klein revealed that he had officially left the band. In a weird, but straight to the point message that he posted online, the bassist revealed that he had left and that he has actually been gone from the group for almost a month.
Klein’s message can be read below.
“To avoid more PMs after today’s news out of the Black Flag Official camp… I guess I should OFFICIALLY (puns!) say that I’m no longer playing with BF. I suppose the following post from last month wasn’t exactly clear. Now go listen to They Stay Dead and Screeching Weasel. See ya soon at a show near you!”
Just the other day, like we had written up, it had been confirmed that skateboarder Mike Vallely would be taking over the role of vocalist for the band after former vocalist, Ron Reyes was fired mid-show during a gig in Australia.
Now, it looks like the band are going to have to start a search for a new bassist to fill in the void since they are supposedly going to head out on tour soon and have new music in the works. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens with this version of Black Flag.
