Winds of Plague Parts Ways with Drummer, Working on New Album + Embark on Tour
Winds of Plague has officially parted ways with drummer Art Cruz due to creative differences and wish him all the very best in his future endeavors. "After many years of having Art Cruz with us we have decided its best for both parties involved to go our separate ways," states vocalist Johnny Plague.
"Art is a great drummer and I'm sure he will be back behind the drums one way or another soon." Art Cruz adds, "I'm very thankful for the experience. I love those dudes. I will continue to play drums and on the business side, I am currently pursuing artist management. To keep up with what I'm doing, follow me on twitter at twitter.com/artimusplague."
Without missing a beat, WINDS OF PLAGUE is currently holed up in the studio working on the much anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed album Against The World.
