Seventh Seal Announces New Drummer, Tour Plans
Baltimore-area metal band Seventh Seal has announced Jim Martin as their new drummer. Commenting on the drummer situation, Justin posted the following:
"We've had our eye on him for quite some time, he absolutely WAILS on the kit! You will not believe it when you see him live!! Thanks to EVERYONE that came and tried out, there were a lot of really cool guys that we met along the way. We've been auditioning for quite some time as you all know, we didn't want to rush our decision. Bringing in a new person is like adding a brother to your family and since you can pick and choose instead of just being born into a family with no option, you gotta make sure you pick the right one!!! We also would like to give a HUUUUUUGE thanks to Mark Mathias for filling in all this time on the kit for our live shows and our last studio trek. Now he can finally get back to whooping people's asses behind the scenes for Seventh Seal!! :) Mark, as you all may or may not know, has done all the drums on all 3 Seventh Seal albums as well as a ton of management stuff for the band. When we lost our old drummer he jumped in without question until we found the new one so we could continue the bands progression without having to wait. So again, THANKS MARK!!!!! Come check out our last two shows with Mark on drums at Angels and Ramshead this week, it's going to be INSANE!!!! Then be sure to come check out our first show with JIM "I PREFER PLASTIC ON MY BURGER" MARTIN at Dakota's in Chambersburg on April 26th, it's going to be off the walls in that place!"
Seventh Seal is planning to tour extensively this year, including a small tour into New England beginning the last week of May and into June. The band is finalizing dates for that run and will be announcing the dates for their "As Lives Of One" fall tour, which will see them hit the entire east coast during the month of October.
