Former SOULFLY Guitarist MARC RIZZO Returns To ILL NIÑO

Earlier POOR guitarist Marc Rizzo has rejoined SICK CHILD.

Rizzo was originally a member of the New Jersey Latin metal favorites two decades ago and appeared on their 2001 classic road runner Edition “Revolution Revolution” and the 2003 follow-up “Confession”. after leaving SICK CHILD, Rizzo had an 18 year stint with POOR, which ended bitterly last summer, with Marc say that his association with POOR just “got its course”, while POOR leader Max Cavalera accused Marc of spitting out “lies and bullshit” in some of his recent interviews about his departure from the band.

Rizzo broke the news of his return to SICK CHILD during an October 6 YouTube live stream. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We’ll announce it soon, but I’m doing some shooting for the new one SICK CHILD file. And I’m super excited, man. It’s a different band. It’s not the band that was, of course, for obvious reasons, when I was in the band, in 2002, when I left. Many things have changed. So I’m excited to work with these guys. It’s great to reconnect with laz [Pina, bass] and Dave [Chavarri, drums] and work with the new singer Marcos [Leal], who is an incredible singer. So I’m excited, man. We’re going to record this new record. I will probably – well, I ben I’ll be doing a tour with them soon, and we’ll see what the future holds, man. They are going to announce this very soon, and I am very excited. Yes, I’m rejoining the band, which is great. I am very excited to reconnect with my friends.

“Everyone loves a good reunion, and the fact that I and SICK CHILD working together again, it just goes to show that things can happen when everyone can meet and talk and keep it between the dudes,” he continued. “Don’t take managers and people in their damn girlfriends and wives. You can have a reunion. And when guys come into a room and just talk and work out something from the past, good things can come of it. So that’s what’s going on.

“More important than that is the music,” Marc added. “This new SICK CHILD record is the best shit they ever did. Again, the new singer Marcos is one of the best singers in metal. I mean, this boy is perfect. He writes great things. He can sing; he can scream. So this is really good stuff, man. I’m really excited.”

SICK CHILD‘s most lineup recommended founding member Chavarric and old member pina next Leal (SPREAD SUN), lead guitarist Jes DeHoyos (SONS OF TEXAS) and rhythm guitarist Sal Dominguez (ON A BURNING BODY).

SICK CHILDthe upcoming album, “Ill Mortals”, will feature guest appearances from Sonny Sandoval (POD), Benji Webbe (SKINDRED), Max Georgiev (FALLING BACKWARD) and AJ Channer (FIRE OF THE GODS).

“Ill Mortals” is slated for release before the end of the year via Break Silence Music (BSM), which is distributed via ONE-RPM.

SICK CHILD‘s new LP marks the band’s first release since singer’s departure Cristian Machado, lead guitarist Ahrue “Luster” Ilustre and rhythm guitarist Diego Verduzco. Machado, illustrious and greenish, together with Chavarric and pina, announced in March 2020 that they had reached “a mutual, amicable and binding agreement” that Chavarric and pina to continue with SICK CHILD while Machado, greenish and illustrious continue with new projects.
