Black metal act Pain is a Narcotic has checked in with the following update about releasing a new split release and welcoming a new drummer:
"In early 2012 we will be releasing a split with Count Shannath, Necrosadik and Waste of Life. Originally the line-up was going to be Count Shannath, Necrosadik and Lost Inside... However Lost Inside unfortunately lost all their material due to the failure of recording equipment, so we are not entirely sure if they will still be on the split.
"There will also be a line-up change in our band, as Luke is leaving after the 2011/12 tour and we will be welcoming a new drummer, James P.
"The departure of our current drummer, Luke was mutual and based on personal things. However with a new drummer it will mean a lot of changes for the band; such as a better practice place and possibly more gigs in the future.
"Because of the split and new drummer in place, there will probably be a delay in the recordings and release of the full length, Melancholy Winter, which was originally planned to be released Winter 2012. Now we're looking at late 2012 or early 2013. The result may be entirely different, but only time will tell."
