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:

Rings Of Saturn’s Lucas Mann Responds To Accusations Of Miming Guitar Parts (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Jared Dines has now shared a new video in which he apologizes to Lucas Mann for his comments:

Original Story:

Rings Of Saturn’s Lucas Mann has shared a new video in which he responds to accusations of fake guitar playing, including recent comments made by YouTuber Jared Dines. You can watch that below. Mann also issued the following statement:

“All Guitar Playing in this video is supplemented by the raw DI tracks at the end of the video that I welcome anyone to inspect. Live audio from our shows recorded direct from the console is featured debunking the “miming live” argument entirely. An explanation of why there was confusion upon the popular accusations and arguments is given, along with more supporting evidence such as a fan video. Call out Culture and Jared Dines is discussed as well. I am not trying to attack anyone with this, and only want positivity for everyone involved, however I feel my side needs to be heard because it has overwhemingly been suppressed. Hopefully this video clears everything up.”
