Ohio metallers SKELETONWITCH have parted ways with drummer Derrick “Mullet Chad” Nau. Replacing him temporarily with Tony Laureano (DIMMU BORGIR, 1349, ANGELCORPSE, NILE). Guitarist Scott Hedrick comments that “Our good friend Tony will be playing drums on our April tour, new album, and for the foreseeable future.
“We’re fucking stoked to have a drummer of his caliber and experience on board. He’s a beast behind the kit and a great fucking guy as well. You can’t ask for more than that!”
He added, “After our last tour, Derrick informed us that he is putting down the drum sticks and picking up the paint brush. He is returning to art school and does not wish to be a musician anymore.
“We would like to thank Derrick for his years of dedication to SKELETONWITCH. Though we will miss him, there is no bad blood. We will always remain great friends and wish him the best with his new endeavor.”
Well hello there!
