Yeah, the official press release from them also confirms that it's Century Media that they specifically signed on with, not Inside Out. Either way, I think it's fantastic news!

I had thought for sure that the big announcement was going to be whoever their new drummer is, but alas that isn't the case yet. I'm still hoping it's Gergo Borlai personally.

Yup, already pre-ordered mine. With that purchase, I'm pretty sure that makes Witherfall's Nocturnes & Requiems the album I've purchased the most times ever (first in mp3 format on iTunes, then again on CD and now with the In Vino Veritas vinyl record). Usually I just buy an album once or twice. Never done it three times before, I think.

Oh and in the recent audio interview that Joseph and Jake did with That Drummer Guy, they mentioned that they've pretty much already written the entire second album at this point and describe a bit of the album. There's ten songs in total; six unrelated songs and a 35 minute long four-song-long suite about Adam and his death.

Are we talking Adam from Adam and Eve, or is this an actual person the band knows?

Adam Sagan, the band's original drummer. He died from cancer just before the first album was released.

Oh OK. I mean..not OK. Thank you, I didn't know.

Still my AOTY.

Yeah, it's a pretty tragic thing. Apparently Sagan was in quite a few bands over the years, like Circle II Circle and Into Eternity. It sucks that he didn't get to see how well-received the album has been by folks.

And yeah, same. I freaking love this album and can't wait to hear the next album whenever that comes out.

He was great. There are some great videos of Circle II CIrcle playing live with him.

The band just posted a video on their YouTube channel that announced who the new drummer is. It's Steve Bolognese, another Into Eternity alumni like Adam Sagan was!!! Dude sounds awesome in the video!!! :metal

Here's the link to the video, btw!

Mhmm!

And something else that I think fellow DTF members will find really awesome- Steve Bolognese was formerly a student of Mike Mangini's at Berklee years ago and was the guy they selected to initially replace Mangini when he left the university to first join Dream Theater in 2011! He's since transferred over to teaching at a school in Los Angeles, but he's literally a pupil of a Dream Theater drummer! :metal

As an aside, I really loved Bolognese's drum work on Into Eternity's The Incurable Tragedy album. Dude's absolutely got the chops to succeed Adam here in Witherfall. I was hoping for Gergo Borlai for months, but in hindsight, I absolutely think Bolognese is the perfect guy to carry on the torch that Adam lit behind the drumkit for the band. He'll do right by Adam, I have no doubts about that whatsoever! :metal

Yup, saw that a couple days ago! Very excited to see how that turns out! And sorry for not confirming it a few months back, but yeah, Steve Bolognese was Mike Mangini's student and briefly succeeded him as a professor at Berklee when Mangini first joined Dream Theater. Dude's a perfect pick for succeeding Adam Sagan! :metal

So a few big things to bring up here!!! :metal

1. Witherfall has officially announced their live debut show will be at this year's 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise early next month!

2. There's a new song titled "The Long Walk Home (December)" from Witherfall on Amazon that will be purchasable in the middle of March- but I wouldn't be surprised if the band plays it live at the aforementioned show in a few weeks and possibly release a music video for the song ahead of time.

3. Sanctuary officially announced that Witherfall vocalist Joseph Michael will fill in for the late Warrel Dane on the previously announced US tour they're doing with Iced Earth this spring as a farewell tribute to Warrel.

Oh and the band finally released their first official band photo together! Sadly Adam was diagnosed with his cancer before they got a chance to do a band photo for the Nocturnes & Requiems lineup.
