Formed in the late ’00’s by Phelps, who has cut his teeth as a touring member of Cynic and Defeated Sanity, in addition to acting as frontman for Death To All (touring tribute band to Chuck Shuldiner), the band is rounded out with bassist Alex Weber (Jeff Loomis), and guitarist Mathew Rossa. Drummer Hannes Grossman (Necrophagist, Obscura) lent his hand on the “So True, So Bound” recording, stating “Exist is hands down one of the most talented and musically interesting young bands out there. Deciding to record with them was a no-brainer.”

EXIST will head out in early June to join Gorguts and Defeated Sanity on a month-long jaunt across North America. Phelps will pull double duty on the run, as he will also be providing vocals for Defeated Sanity, no small feat for two such hard-hitting bands!  Dates are as follows:
