Unearth To Play Benefit Show For Family Of Late Bassist

Massachusetts metallers UNEARTH have issued the following update:

"Our first gig of 2011 will be a benefit show for our former bass player Chris 'Rover' Rybicki, who tragically lost his life at the hands of an alleged drunk driver this past September. We will be playing alongside another one of Rover's former bands, NO CHOICE, as well as our friends in SCREAMS OF ERIDA and GASKET. All proceeds will go directly to the Rybicki family. Come down to one of our old stomping grounds to celebrate the life of our longtime friend as well as helping out the family he left behind. R.I.P., Rover." The concert will take place February 19 at Saint Michaels Hall in Lynn, Massachusetts. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are just $10 and only available at the door.

For more information, go to this location.

Rybicki passed away on September 20, 2010 from injuries sustained in an accident when the scooter he was riding on was hit by an allegedly drunk woman.

According to The Salem News, Rybicki was riding a scooter in Salem, Massachusetts on August 28 when it collided with a 2008 Volkswagen Passat driven by Beth MacGillivary (photo of crash scene).

MacGillivary failed two field sobriety tests and had a blood alcohol level of .17, more than twice the legal limit, police said.

Rybicki was a member of UNEARTH from 1998 to 2002. He played on the band's first two EPs "Above The Fall Of Man" (1999) and "Endless" (2002) as well as the group's full-length debut, "The Stings Of Conscience" (2001).

The Salem News listed Rybicki's age at the time of his death as 39 while The Daily Item reported that he was 35 years old.

UNEARTH previously stated about Rybicki, "Not only was Rover a talented musician, but he was also one of the funniest dudes you would ever know. His wit, dark humor and don't-give-a-fuck attitude made him a unique person that we all loved having in our lives. His memory will live on amongst his family and friends with the countless stories of Rover being Rover. He will be sorely and forever missed."

That's pretty cool of them.
