Montreal-based metallers Augury have issued the following update:

"We sadly have to announce that drummer Antoine Baril has decided to retire from the band."

Antoine Baril stated: "I'm very sad to have to announce my departure from Augury. Some personal and professional reasons made multiple touring impossible for me at the moment. I wish all the best for Augury because those wonderful guys are making incredibly good music. I will never forget those memorable shows and I would like to thank everyone for their support on the road everywhere we've been on tour."

The band added: "We thank Antoine for all the good times and excellent music, and we wish him well in all aspects of his life. He will remain a close friend for all of us. For the upcoming tour with Vader, drummer Robin "Frog" Stone from Australian industrial metal mad scientists The Amenta will take over the drum throne. He is a very tight and skilled drummer, having learned our set in a matter of hours. Here is a video of Robin in action.

We have a new drummer ready in Montreal for the upcoming tours. Videos and name will be revealed soon."

Don't worry, I saw them last Saturday in NYC and the drummer from The Amenta filled in admirably after only having less than 48 hours to learn the set list of 4 tracks. I can only imagine it getting better from here on out.

Aw, that sucks about him leaving. Well, best of luck to Antoine Beril with his endeavors and the band on their tour.

Indeed the drummer from The Amenta did a good job on learning the songs quick. The bassist was fucking amazing live.
