The Amazing Snakeheads replace original bassist and drummer

Scottish rocker Dale Barclay will debut two new The Amazing Snakeheads bandmates at a concert in London on Tuesday (17Jun14) after parting ways with his drummer and bassist. The singer broke the news to fans in an emotional post on on Sunday (15Jun14), suggesting the split with original bassist William Coombe and drummer Jordan Hutchinson was far from amicable.
The message read: “In the interest of transparency and fairness I will say this. William quit the band and Jordon (sic) knows why him and I are no longer friends. F**k anyone who thinks otherwise.
“I have no intentions of p**sing over something that meant so much to me so will never go into detail of the where, why and when of what has happened, especially on this barrel of bulls**t.”
A follow-up statement released on Monday (16Jun14) reads: “The Amazing Snakeheads have had a line-up change – Dale Barclay is now accompanied by Andrew Pattie and Scott Duff. The band will be performing tomorrow night at Meltdown Festival in London, at Reading and Leeds (U.K. festival) this August and at all other shows as previously announced.”
The new-look trio will perform in public together for the first time on Tuesday, when the band will take the stage at the Southbank Centre as part of James Lavelle’s Meltdown Festival.
The line-up change comes just two months after the release of The Amazing Snakeheads’ debut album, Amphetamine Ballads.
