At the end of 2022, The Big Six announced the union of six deathcore vocalists – Will Ramos (Lorna Shore), Chris Fronzak (Attila), Joe Badolato (Fit For an Autopsy), Taylor Barber (Left to Suffer), Dickie Allen (Infant extinction), Tyler Shelton (Traitors) – all of whom had contributed to an EP due out sometime in 2023.
Now, Badalato has departed, as revealed in a new social media post by The Big Six.
The statement reads: “Unfortunately [Joe Badalato] will not join us in the future. But! The train never stops rolling. We have a special person ready to be our sixth! Tag who you think it is below! Your comments mean a lot to us!”
The post was later amended, as reflected in the continued statement, “EDIT: We are currently weighing our options to give you guys the best experience and get this music out to you ASAP! Either way, get ready for some jams!”
The project was led by Jozy Franco, who had the band record at Sweetwater Studios in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Presumably Franco is the one who commented on this post (through The Big Six account), taking the blame for the turmoil.
“Much love everyone! I take full responsibility for not reaching out to some of these parties/labels for permission to use their vocalists’ likenesses,” the comment read, “We fully respect their decision and that’s what it is! Train keeps moving regardless ! Appreciate everyone for the love and support and for keeping going. It’s all trial and error! I learn how to succeed through my failures!”
Stay tuned for more information as it comes.
