Flotsam And Jetsam - Confirm New Drummer, New Album This Year


Thrash legends Flotsam And Jetsam have officially confirmed Ken Mary as their new drummer. But there's more. Their Spring European tour kicked off last weekend and a new album is due later this year.

As they prepare for a busy season of touring, Flotsam And Jetsam have officially welcomed Ken Mary (Alice Cooper, Accept) as their permanent drummer. Mary, who began touring with the group last year after Jason Bittner was invited to join Overkill, will join the band on all of their upcoming tour dates, including a short run of European shows. He will also perform on the group's in-progress new album, due to be released via AFM Records later this year.

"It's always awesome to play with the mighty Flotsam And Jetsam," Mary says. "The music is super-challenging and at the same time a great deal of fun to play. With such great musicians in the band that are also great guys, it's going to be a blast!"

"We're excited to announce that Ken will be our new drummer," adds the band. "Ken has already tracked all the drums for our upcoming album slated for release later this year, and we're all looking forward to the fans experiencing a new chapter in the history of Flotsam And Jetsam."
