Former Bury Your Dead bassist Aaron 'Bubble' Patrick has a new gig playing bass for Michigan's Legend. Bubble joins the band as its second guitarist, reports the band -- who just wrapped the recording of their Rise Records debut, 'Valediction,' which is scheduled to drop May 25. The disc was produced by Zeuss, who has worked with the likes of Hatebreed and Vision of Disorder.

Legend frontman Chad Ruhlig says Legend are "excited to have Bubble aboard. He's a good friend and an amazing performer. He fits in the puzzle perfectly."

Rumors started circulating back in October that he had left Bury Your Dead, news that was not confirmed until early January, when For the Fallen Dreams guitar player Chris Cain revealed he would be taking over for Patrick. An official explanation for Patrick's departure has never been offered.

"I'm really excited to get involved with a new band that has such potential," says Bubble. "I've been friends with Joe and Chad for quite a few years, and we have toured together a few times. It's pretty awesome to get to play music with friends and be a part of Legend in its beginning stages."
