Novembers Doom - Part Ways With Drummer, Seek Replacement

US metal band Novembers Doom have announced the following statement about parting ways with drummer:

"Due to choices made by Novembers Doom's drummer, Sasha Horn, in both his personal and professional life, only after much consideration, and a long year of a 1400 mile distance hurdle, Novembers Doom and Sasha Horn, have decided to mutually part ways. For once this isn't your typical "musical differences" excuse, this is simply, due to distance and Sasha's pursuit and focus in other directions, it became clear to all of us, he was no longer able to contribute the same dedication to Novembers Doom as the rest of the band. We wish Sasha the best in his future endeavors.

As for the future of Novembers Doom, we are currently seeking to fill this position. Anyone interested in this opportunity can contact us through drummer@novembersdoom.com. Several projects are already in the works, and where it's too soon for any formal announcements, we can assure you, Novembers Doom's best days are yet to come."
