We might have the first drama of the year on our hands, or at least the first legal battles taking place.

Avenged Sevenfold have a new drummer! The American metallers have announced that former Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman has joined the band. The group revealed last month that they found Arin Ilejay's replacement before their former sticksman had officially left the group. Now they've named the former Infectious Grooves and Bad Religion drummer as the man for the job. Wackerman has also played with Suicidal Tendencies, Blink-182 and Tenacious D.
Avenged Sevenfold are parting ways with another drummer. Arin Ilejay is no longer behind the kit and the band will be moving forward without him due to creative differences. Since the passing of drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan in 2009, the band has had in its ranks Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater) and later Arin Ilejay. Avenged Sevenfold still haven't announced a replacement but say they are excited about their future plans. Any guesses on who the new drummer might be?
