The Big Six have lost another founding member. The self-described deathcore boy band launched in late December 2022 with a series of hysterical videos and brutal musical teasers promoting their star-studded lineup — Lorna Shore's Will Ramos, Attila's Chris Fronzak, Fit for an Autopsy's Joe Badolato, Left to Suffer's Taylor Barber, Infant Annihilator's Dickie Allen and Traitors' Tyler Shelton.
Then, just two weeks after they started, and a few days after they began teasing their debut EP, Fronzak announced that he was quitting the group to focus on other pursuits. In his place, the Big Six added Spite frontman Darius Tehrani, but now they've gone through another major lineup change — Badolato has also quit.
"Unfortunately Joe Badolato won't be joining us moving forward," the band, who have yet to release any music, wrote in a statement on Instagram. "But! The train never stops rollin.' We have someone special lined up for you guys to be our sixth! Tag who you think it is below! Your recommendations mean a lot to us!"
Then, in a comment replying to their initial post, they added this: "Make sure you guys tag the artist physically so they see you want them on the project!!!"
The statement is admittedly a little bit confusing. In one sentence, the band say they have "someone special lined up" to be the sixth member, but they're also telling fans to tag other vocalists and that their "recommendations mean a lot," which kind of feels like they're still asking for advice on who that sixth person should be. Maybe they're just looking for additional guests to feature on the project?
It's unclear, but it does seem like the Big Six will continue, and hopefully one day we'll actually hear a song of theirs. In the meantime, see their official statement below.
