||US thrashers Anger As Art have announced their new bassist Henry De La Cruz. Henry replaces Angelo Espino, who departed in October.
Bassist Henry De La Cruz (Maniacal Genocide, Stigmata, RevMatix) joins Anger As Art says mainman/founder Steve Gaines: "Hank! That's about all you need to know. Henry was at the top of all of our lists of guys we wanted to talk to. He has been in bands with both Dan and Rob - and I have been onstage and jammed with him many times over the years. Musically, he's a monster. Influences? The same. He knows the history of AAA. But most important was 'the hang'. The chemistry. We were facing a big unknown going forward without Angelo and needed to know that the new person would not just fill the space, but make it his own. Intangibles. Henry is that guy."
