Gorguts - Part Ways With Drummer

Canadian metallers Gorguts have parted ways with drummer John Longstreth, also in Origin. The decision was announced by John himself and confirmed by Luc Lemay. John Longstreth will not be joining Gorguts on the upcoming tours and will instead be focusing on the new Origin record. According to Longstreth, Patrice Hamelin will be behind the kit with Gorguts this year.

He says: ''Hey just to give everyone an update on what is going on for me in 2014. Origin has completed the record Omnipresent. I am extremely happy with the outcome and can't wait until everyone gets to hear it! The DVD is coming along nicely but it will take a few months to complete everything. After it's completion I will be able to start sending out perks to all the contributors. I would like to thank everyone for their support this could not have happened without you. I will keep everyone updated as it progresses.

"I have been getting asked about the Gorguts up and coming dates lately. I will not be joining Gorguts on the up and coming tours. Luc Lemay has decided to take out Patrice Hamelin for all dates in 2014. I can't say I am not disappointed but I respect his decision and it allows me to concentrate on Origin, the DVD, other projects and future drum clinics/workshops. I am very happy to say that some Gorguts material will be included on my up and coming DVD''.

Longstreth's upcoming DVD was recorded at the legendary Warehouse Studio's in Vancouver BC, Canada. It is his debut instructional DVD.
