The Black Dahlia Murder have officially announced new bassist  Max Lavelle. (Depised Icon)

Longtime bassist Ryan 'Bart' Williams has stepped down from his full time assignment as bass player for TBDM to follow a career in recording. But we have been assured that he will be involved in the band in many ways.

I love The Black Dahlia Murder and I am stoked to hear about this new addition to the band. Despised Icon have toured with TBDM many times and I am glad that Max Lavelle has joined up.
