Harvey replaced OBSCURA vocalist Steffen Kummerer due to visa issues and had only 9 days to learn his entire set. Matt Harvey elaborates on the opportunity: “To say that I'm excited about hitting the stage with such amazing musicians would be a massive understatement. To say that I'm overwhelmed standing in Chuck's spot singing his songs would be the understatement of the century. Phrases like "its an honor" get tossed around pretty casually, but taking part in this unique celebration is truly exhilirating, humbling and magical for me. Even though the name of the band is Death, this event is a celebration of Chuck's life and the vitality and staying power of his work. To be able to share what Death's music has meant to me this way is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I am incredibly grateful to have.”
Additionally, the concert organizers commented on Matt’s involvement:
"The guys in the band, as well as the organizers and crew want you to know Matt has been killing it! We are all very thankful for his efforts and talent, being able to pull this off on such short notice."
