Primal Fear - Drummer Aquiles Out, Francesco Jovino In

There are a few changes happening in Primal Fear. Brazilian drummer Aquiles Priester, who joined the power metallers just last year is now out of the band. Who will replace him? Francesco Jovino. After 10 years behind the drums for U.D.O., Francesco joins Primal Fear. And also founding member Tom Naumann joins the band as an official member! After two years touring with Primal Fear, Tom is now back as a full member. Magnus Karlsson will remain a member of the band and will co-write the new album of the band.

The recordings of the new Primal Fear album will start in mid-July at Hansen Studio in Denmark with producer Mat Sinner and engineer Jacob Hansen. 12 songs are already written, in pre-production. The new album will be released worldwide in January 2016 via Frontiers Music.

The band also said: "To all Primal Fear and Aquiles Priester fans around the world! We knew it would be a hard mission for us, but we've given it a try and unfortunately, to combine our present obligations and our future endeavors, it has become impossible to have a cohesive band together. Due to our schedules and the distance between the continents we have decided to part ways. From both sides we do not have any regrets at all and we are very happy that we have tried our best to make it happen. We are all still good friends and we wish all the best for each other in the future. Mat, Ralf, Aquiles, Tom and Alex."
