Crowbar have parted company with bassist Jeff Golden – and replaced him with returning founder member Todd ‘Sexy T’ Strange.

Strange makes his return to the fold having left the band in 2000. Golden held the position since 2013.

Frontman Kirk Windstein confirmed Golden’s departure at the weekend. He said: “As many of you may have heard, we have parted ways with Jeff Golden, and he is no longer our bassist.

“Being in a band is like being in a relationship and things don’t always work out. We want to thank Jeff for his dedication and loyalty and we sincerely wish him and his family all the best in the future.”

Hours later, Crowbar posted an image of Strange on their official Facebook page, along with the caption: “Welcome back my friend.”

Crowbar recently wrapped up recording of their 11th album and they launch a US tour with Carcass next month.
