"Whats up everyone just wanted to give you an update on whats going on in the BSE camp as of late. Jer left for Calgary in Febuary and we were lucky enough to find a killer replacment right away, so steppin up on bass duties now is Jay Lesperance from "Kill List" / "Shot Down Stars" (RIP).

So I said it! and I mean it!! the vocals are straight up heavy as FUCK! the drums are fast and tight as FUCK! and we thought to ourselves what the FUCK lets throw some rip, roarin solos into the mix, so Jamie shredded with the best on this album! We hope to have it released by the summer on Galy Records, keep an eye out for updates and new tracks in the near future."

Bloodshoteye Seeks New Drummer, New Photos Online

Bloodshoteye guitarist Shane has posted this message on the band's official website:

Well first off we have to give a huge thanks to Patrice Hamelin of Martyr and Mike LePrieur for their dedication by helping us out filling in on drums this weekend. We wouldn't have been able to do these shows with out you guys, we had a great time meeting you and partying together. As ya'll may know by now our drummer quit the band 4 days before we were to play this weekend of shows, with no notice or anything we had to find replacments at the last minute. There was no way in hell we'd cancel this weekend, to be on the same bill as such great bands as Cryptopsy, Cephalic Carnage & The End and then playing the Montreal show at The Medley for about 1500 people. There is NOTHING in the world that feels better then being on that huge stage and playing for such a big and intense crowd. Check out hundreds of pictures from the show thanks to Aaron here.

So the hunt is one for a new drummer we have been in contact with a bunch of people and will start auditioning drummers very shortly. If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming part of the BSE crew get in touch with us and we'll go from there. We only have a couple shows booked for the rest of the year in which time we will start demoing new songs and record the new album early next year! Then we plan to hit the road and start playing as much a possible. This machine won't be stopped its only gonna get better from here on out!
