Raven - Drummer Has Health Issue, To Miss Tours

NWOBHM act Raven announced that their drummer Joe Hasselvander will not join them on their upcoming shows. You can read their full statement below but it is due to a sudden serious health issue. The band will perform with fill-in drummers on the upcoming tours.

The band said: "So...life can (and does) throw the occasional 'mother' of a curveball. Due to a sudden serious health issue, our drummer Joe 'the Baron' Hasselvander will unfortunately be unable to play with us on our current and upcoming dates. As you can imagine, the health and well being of our good mate & partner in mayhem is paramount in importance.

"However in order to meet our obligations to our fans, we will still be playing all upcoming shows with the assistance of some amazing fill-in drummers who have stepped up to the plate to help the show go on. Thursday in Chicago, Jimmy Mess from Tattooed Millionaires will do the honors, and the shows this weekend on the East Coast we are extremely honored to have Fear Factory drummer, and all around Metal legend Mike Heller behind the kit. And for the European tour, Kill Ritual drummer Dave Chedrick will do the honors. Please join with us in wishing Joe best wishes and a speedy recovery."
