German thrash metal legends Destruction has announced that drummer Wawrzyniec “Vaaver” Dramowicz will be leaving the band for family reasons this March, meaning he will still be with them for the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise and other dates in February. A statement from frontman Schmier reads as follows:
“It is an odd and sad headline at the same time,” says Destruction leader Schmier. “Our drummer Vaaver will leave us because of family reasons this March. After eight years this is bad news but we are still friends and wish him and his family all the best! He will release a statement ASAP!
“Most important: ALL shows will go ahead. Vaaver will play with us till this March. So give him a nice goodbye please!
“Mr. Randy Black, who already replaced him on his baby-break, will step in for the shows after March, until we decide who will be his worthy successor. Now we have almost beaten SPINAL TAP right?
“Good thing – no farewell tour yet! 😛 UNITED WE STAND, cheers for all the years Vaaver!”
