After a few years in CKY, Matt Deis (Bass) has parted ways with the band CKY, citing that he’s stepping down to focus on himself as well as his family.
“Thank you to Cig, Jess, all of our hardworking crew & management, and the entire CKY Alliance for having me back these past two years. I’m stepping aside to focus on myself and my family so that CKY can continue their dominant return with nothing holding it back. I’m so proud of everything that’s been accomplished and I can’t wait to see what’s to come. Be sure to catch them in Europe this July and August while tickets are still available.”
Matt Deis initially joined CKY back in 2005 after the release of their thir record, ‘An Answer Can Be Found’ and featured on their 2009 release ‘Carver City’ before stepping away from the band in the following year.
Deis re-joined in 2005 and performed on their latest record, ‘The Phoenix’ which was released in 2017.
There is currently no news on a full time replacement for CKY.
