Jon Dette (pictured below), who recently played with SLAYER and ANTHRAX (and previously with TESTAMENT), will be playing drums for HEATHEN on the San Francisco Bay Area thrash band’s upcoming European tour with GENERATION KILL and DUST BOLT.
Comments HEATHEN: “As most of you know already, Darren [Minter] recently left the band. It was an amicable split and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.
“For those of you concerned about our upcoming European tour, have no fear. Jon Dette will be filling in on drums for all dates on the tour. Jon played with us once before during our North American tour a couple of years ago and we are looking forward to touring with him again. Get ready for the chaos!”
HEATHEN‘s European tour is scheduled to kick off on June 7 in Berlin, Germany.
The band last year inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records.
HEATHEN‘s latest album, “The Evolution Of Chaos”, was released in the U.S. on February 16, 2010. The CD was issued in Japan on December 23, 2009 via King Records and was made available on January 25 in Europe via Holland’s Mascot Records.
