Texas band Urizen just issued the following statement online about parting ways with the group's drummer:
"Friends, it is with sadness that we announce that we are parting ways with our long-time brother, drummer, and co-founding Urizen member Julio Escamilla. We have reached a point where our lives are leading us in different directions, and it is no longer possible for Julio to continue on with the band.
"We are parting on good terms, and there are no words to express the value that Julio has brought to this project with his skills as a drummer, his friendship, and his commitment to furthering the UriCause throughout the years. Be on the lookout for his insanely fast feet to show up in new and exciting musical projects very soon!
"We would also like to announce that we will be joined on all upcoming endeavors by our good buddy Nolan McCormick, who filled in behind the kit for Julio during our 25-date tour with Psychostick and Downtown Brown this past spring. Nolan brings his own set of killer skills to the table, and we're looking forward to continuing to rock with him as we barrel down this crazy robo-filled path we're on!
"We've got lots of fun stuff to share with you all soon, but for now, please join us in thanking Julio for everything he's done for this band since we first jammed on Dimmu Borgir covers with him all those years ago! Never stop a-rockin', dudes and dudettes!"
Texas outfit Urizen has issued the following announcement about canceling the band's previously scheduled appearance tonight:
"We are very very sad to say that we will NOT be performing at Wits End in Dallas for tonight's Christmas show and toy drive. The road conditions in DFW are just too hazardous, especially to the north, where Thomas and I live. There's no way for us to safely make it to Dallas, and we are very unhappy about that.
"At this time I do not know if the rest of the show is canceled, but I will give updates as I hear them.
"If you live in DFW, or any of the areas affected by this icy winter storm, please PLEASE stay home tonight! Unless you are willing to risk your vehicle and your life, just kick back, grab an NES controller, and ride the cold out in style!
