Warbringer - Drummer Leaves The Band

Last night, Warbringer played at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA supporting Sepultura and Angra. This marked the last show together with drummer Nic Ritter (ex-Prototype). After a two-year international touring cycle and one album, Waking Into Nightmares, Nic and the band have decided to collectively part ways.

Nic had this to say about his decision: "I felt like it was time for a change both musically and personally. All is good between the guys and myself as this was a mutual decision. I wish them the best in the future and with the next album."

Added Warbringer guitarist John Laux: "Nic Ritter is an incredible drummer and we wish him the best of luck! I know he made a lot of friends around the world and I just want everyone to understand that our decision to part ways was mutual and necessary. Nic has worked very hard with us over the last 2 years and we are grateful for his contributions musically and his commitment personally on the road."

In the meantime, Warbringer have been writing and practicing with a new drummer and will perform their first show together as part of the EyeScream Festival in Mexico City on March 5th.

I bet Mike Portnoy will be the new drummer.

Underpaid M.D.
Holy Fuck! I wanted them to keep that drummer in the band, he's simply awesome, and his work in "Waking Into Nightmares" is superb. Damn, this is a sad news, at least for me

It's the vocalist who should leave the band.
They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody
