Rings Of Saturn Digitally Release New Self-Titled Album

Rings Of Saturn have digitally released a new self-titled album. You can stream that effort below:

The group said the following:

“‼️ The Rings of Saturn Self Titled Full Length Album will be released tomorrow on all digital platforms just in time for our Cyber Shred Tour 2022! We will be playing most of the new album live on this tour along with some older fan favorite tracks as well! ‼️

Having just finished our new album this week, and unfortunately due to international vinyl shortages and other delays on physical media production in general, we will not have vinyl or CD’s of our new album on this tour. It was our priority to release this album before the tour for our fans digitally, and we plan on pressing vinyl and CD’s at a later date for everyone which will be available on IndieMerchstore in the future!

For now the best way to support the band is to come out to the Cyber Shred Tour 2022, and buy all of the new merch we just dropped for this tour and on Indiemerchstore! We are also restocking many of our older designs this week as well on our store! Tickets and store link below!

Drummer Mike Caputo Exits Rings Of Saturn, Joins Brand Of Sacrifice

Mike Caputo has announced his departure from Rings Of Saturn. The drummer is leaving the band to join Brand Of Sacrifice.

Rings Of Saturn commented:

“Congratulations to @mikecaputodrums in joining our friends in @brandofsacrificemetal as a full-time member 🎉 Mike is an absolutely amazing drummer, huge thanks goes out to him for everything ❤

This means that Rings of Saturn is looking for a new drummer to play our European festivals currently booked in August 2022. We will be playing these with our original vocalist, and voice of Embryonic Anomaly, Peter Pawlak. We also have US tour plans beforehand in the summer.

We are preferably looking for a US based drummer, over 21, with touring experience, who can play the full Embryonic Anomaly album, and has all the requirements to travel abroad for the Euro fests.”

Caputo added:

“Hey everyone! I’d like to announce that after playing with Rings of Saturn since 2018 I’ve decided it’s time to step down from the band and shift my focus a bit. An opportunity came up for me that I would like to take but might consistently conflict with Rings‘ schedule. I have decided to take this opportunity that was presented to me. But as to not hinder Rings, who deserves someone who can focus on them full-time, I feel it’s best for me to step away.

I want to thank Lucas for bringing me on and trusting me to do justice to those insane drum parts live on the road, as well as the great opportunities this band has given me. Everyone I have played with during my time in Rings have been and still are good friends to me and I wish them the best. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new instrumental material Lucas and Joel will be putting out soon!

As for where I’m going…some of you may know I’ve been doing some tours with Brand of Sacrifice recently, and they have graciously asked me to join them full-time. I’m super excited for everything that we have planned in the near future!

Although I didn’t have the opportunity to play on any Rings releases, I also want to thank all the Rings’ fans for being so accepting and supportive of me over the years with the band, and I hope to see you guys and gals at future shows!

Wishing Rings much luck on their new endeavors and looking forward to potentially sharing the bill with them on some shows in the future!

– Mike Caputo“

Rings Of Saturn Part Ways With Vocalist Ian Bearer, Plan To Move Forward As An Instrumental Band

Rings Of Saturn have parted ways with vocalist Ian Bearer. The group will now continue as an instrumental act.

Rings Of Saturn said the following:

“Rings Of Saturn is transitioning towards a strictly instrumental direction which will open up many new doors in terms of musical creativity for the bands future. We are looking forward to exploring new territories of writing and expand on the band’s overall sound in this way.

Along with the recent instrumental album release versions of our past discography, every album since ‘Dingir‘ has traditionally included an instrumental track, so many fans will appreciate what’s coming next with a sense of familiarity. We would love to have Ian Bearer on any tours we currently have booked, but that decision remains ultimately up to him, and moving forward this also means that live shows will be done completely as an instrumental band.

We would like to thank Ian Bearer for his years of hard work and commitment as the voice of the band during its most recent 10 years. On tour and in the studio, it has been an honor to create and perform music alongside such a great vocalist. We absolutely wish him the best in any endeavor he decides to pursue, and we hope that fans show him the same love and support as well. – Joel Omans & Lucas Mann.”

This news comes after the band were recently dropped from Nuclear Blast Records.

Rings Of Saturn Dropped By Nuclear Blast Following “Threats” And “Baseless Demands”

Nuclear Blast Records have parted ways with Rings Of Saturn. The label issued the following statement:

“Nuclear Blast has a long-standing history of supporting its artists, treating them with the utmost respect and integrity. This included Lucas Mann and Rings Of Saturn. Nuclear Blast is proud to provide this support and strives to make all its artists feel comfortable that they have a transparent, honest relationship with their label. Sadly, Lucas Mann on behalf of Rings Of Saturn has brazenly threatened to issue public statements “condemning Nuclear Blast in the strongest terms possible” if the label does not give in to his baseless demands. While Nuclear Blast is truly shocked and saddened by Lucas Mann’s actions, Nuclear Blast also does not tolerate threats. Accordingly, Rings Of Saturn have been dropped from the label.”

Rings Of Saturn Premiere Censored Version Of “The Husk” Music Video

Rings Of Saturn have premiered a new censored version of their video for “The Husk.“ This news comes after the original video was age-restricted by YouTube. The track is from the band’s 2019 album “Gidim.”

Lucas Mann commented:

“Hey everyone, I just wanted to explain why I felt a censored version of this video was necessary on YouTube. Within a few days of the release of the original version of this music video, YouTube “Age Restricted” it due to the gory scenes of the alien abduction going against their family friendly community standards. What this meant was that most people needed to actually sign into their YouTube account and confirm their age to even watch the video. This also meant that the videos reach was severely limited on the YouTube algorithm making it basically invisible to most people and was never found in the recommended section like our other content has been. Lastly it deactivated the ability for a lot of people to share the content across some social media platforms altogether. Hopefully everyone is able to enjoy this censored version of the music video, and also be able to find it and share it a bit more easily than the original. Thanks for the support, and enjoy ❤👽”

In other news, an instrumental version of “Gidim” has also been released as well:
