Nick Augusto (ex-Trivium, Corrosion) has joined the band Orbweaver, as their new drummer. The band is currently in preproduction for their new album, Hexagram 23.
The band issued the following statement:
“We are very excited to announce the newest member to the family; Nicholas Augusto. Nick has a very unique style filled with power and has a very adventurous sense of musical exploration.
The band has been holed up at Shadowlit Studios working on pre production for our next record “HEXAGRAM 23″ which we will begin tracking later in the year. We are all looking forward to the new sounds we are creating, and will be slowly revealing songs from the new record at our upcoming shows.
We would also like to take a minute to thank our friend and ally Janette Valentine for taking time out of her super hectic schedule to take a few photos, and somehow make us look less ugly. Thanks Red!
-MAY THE STRANGERS BE LISTENING!”
Augusto also issued his own statement, via Earsplit:
“I’m happy to have been asked to be a part ORBWEAVER. We have all played shows with each other’s bands in the past and have been friends in this scene for quite some time now. I’ve jammed with [guitarist/vocalist] Randy [Piro] before, so the timing was right when we got a hold of each other to join forces and write new material. Looking forward to what this new CD and the future holds for ORBWEAVER!”
