Ex-Rings of Saturn Guitarist Joel Omans outlines in a vitriolic rant on his Facebook timeline the real reasons why he left the band after a recent tour:
"So there's been quite a bit of vagueness to the real reason why I quit Rings of Saturn and It's been eating away at me keeping it to myself so here it goes. The deciding factor in me leaving the band was Lucas. I had enough of biting my tongue and going along for the ride.
"When I first joined the band we got along great and had the same common goals as musicians but that changed more and more over the years. To summarize he simply doesn't care about playing guitar or being a musician anymore. Word for word he told me 'I don't give a shit about playing guitar or getting better at guitar, I just want to write music and get the band as big as possible in the shortest amount of time.' More...

I am at a different place in my life personally and musically and have my ambitions pointed towards a different direction. Thank you to everyone who has supported myself and every member of the band past and present. I wish everyone involved the best of luck with their future endeavors. I will be announcing details on my new project in the near future but until then I hope you all enjoy the recent effort from myself and the rest of ROS in Lugal Ki En. Peace and love, see you all soon."

Bay Area tech-death outfit Rings Of Saturn has unveiled the initial single from upcoming third full-length album, "Lugal Ki En," through a conceptual 3-D video for the album's opening track, "Senseless Massacre." Check it out below, thanks to Metal Injection.
The newly constructed "Senseless Massacre" video was directed and edited by Alex T. Reinhard and shot and produced by Brooke Brennan, both of Brutal Productions, and features visual effects courtesy of Harsh Wayne Enterprises.
The video was also constructed with 3-D viewing enabled via Youtube player settings, though 3-D glasses are required to delve into the other dimension full-on. Comments founding guitarist Lucas Mann of the track:
"'Senseless Massacre' is the first debut single off of Rings Of Saturn's new album, Lugal Ki En, on Unique Leader Records. The music video depicts the band as aliens (full-black eyes) performing on alien-like instruments (Etherial Guitars) with their vocalist, Ian Bearer, being abducted and tortured in extraterrestrial machinery. After being tortured and experimented on, his blood turns blue at the end of the video showing that he has transformed and is no longer human. This conveys the idea that aliens could already be living along side us without the general population being aware of it."
"Lugal Ki En" will see worldwide impact via Unique Leader Records this October, in North America on the 14th and in Europe on the 17th. More...
