Officium Triste Issues Band Activity Update

Dutch metallers Officium Triste have checked in with the following band update about recruiting a new drummer and working on a new album:

"2010 is already 3 months on its way so it is about time to let you all know what’s going on with Officium Triste. We’ve got some bad news and some more exciting news. Let’s start with the bad news. We had to part ways with drummer Ronald Lagerwaard. Ronald simply couldn’t commit to the plans we have concerning Officium Triste’s future. Because of this we had to make a difficult decision as we really appreciated Ronald as a person and as a skilled drummer. As a band we do want to perform live on a regular basis and that simply wasn’t possible due to logistics and personal affairs. We like to thank Ronald for his time in Officium Triste.

"In the meantime we have found a replacement. After some serious brainstorming who would be an ideal drummer we decided to ask Niels Jordaan who in the past pounded the drums for the now defunct band In Age And Sadness. Since we shared the stage with In Age And Sadness several times in the past we knew Niels would be a good replacement. Niels gladly accepted our offer and we are currently rehearsing material with Niels.

"Next to the news about out change in the line-up we are working very hard on material for our new, 5th, full-length album. Right now we have plenty of ideas for 6 to 7 new songs and it’s coming along nicely. We hope to finish the album before the summer and have it released this fall. This will be our last album under the current contract with Displeased Records. At this moment we are also negotiating a couple of festival appearances later this year. More news about those performances is expected soon."
