Back in the day, vocalist Chris Barnes and guitarist Jack Owen were bandmates in Cannibal Corpse for several years. The two have been reunited with the addition of Owen as Six Feet Under's second guitarist.

Barnes says, "As you all know, Jack and I started off together helping form one of the greatest death metal bands of all time. Jack and I began talking a few months ago, after his departure from his previous band about joining forces. From my side of things, it's going to be amazing to work with Jack again!! We had some intense adventures, to say the least hahaha...and it's gonna be killer to step on stage with Jack for the first time in over 22 years!!"

Barnes continues, "Jack will be joining SFU for the entire cycle of touring for the new album and beyond! As you can imagine Six Feet Under is planning a very exciting live set list for you all to freak out over!!! More info and tour dates coming soon! Hang on to your skeleton!!"

Owen adds, "I'm super excited to work with my metal brother Chris Barnes and the mighty Six Feet Under! We've been talking about writing original material for years, and I hope it gets to that point. It would be amazing. For now, I'm looking forward to touring our asses off. I miss Europe, Canada, South America - hell, I just miss touring!"

"It will be an honor jamming with Chris and his current SFU lineup of talented musicians...and performing with Chris will be like reliving our youth," Owen says. "I can't wait to see all the SFU and old school Cannibal Corpse fans across the globe!"

Six Feet Under just released their latest album Torment. It's available via the usual outlets, with bundles for sale at this location. As soon as the band unveils tour plans, we'll let you know.
