Voice Of Ruin just issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band’s long-time drummer:
“After more than 7 years (since the beginning of the band), our dear drummer Olivier has decided to put an end to his journey in Voice of Ruin. It came as a shock to us, especially to me, as we founded the band together with Nils in late 2008.
“As of today, Olivier has different goals than the rest of the band and he choose to step down rather than preventing the project to move on. As you can imagine, being in a band like Voice Of Ruin takes quite some time and requires a lot of sacrifices and dedication. We respect his decision as band members and above all as FRIENDS!
“We wish him all the best with his futur musical ventures. Be assured that we will stay in touch and maintain this friendship that we’ve nurtured for so many years! Meanwhile go check his rock band The Mudcats!
“We won’t cancel any show as Olivier will continue to fulfill his role as drummer until we find the right guy (thank you buddy). We already have a few guys interested by the gig and we will start the audition process next week. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to send us your application.
More updates soon!”
