Cymbals Eat Guitars get new bassist


If fresh-faced Staten Island indie formalist bashers Cymbals Eat Guitars looked a little different in this CMJ photo, your eyes weren’t playing tricks on you. The band’s MySpace page lists a new bassist, a fellow named Matthew Whipple. He replaces Neil Berenholz, who, according to CEG’s publicist, left the band amicably because he didn’t like touring.

In other CEG news, they’ll tour Europe this fall, playing dates with the likes of the Flaming Lips and the Dodos. Dates below.
