Irish dark metal act Primordial has just issued a statement in regards to the band deciding to part ways with drummer Simon O'Laoghaire.

Vocalist Alan Averill had the following to say:
"We need someone who is determined, committed to their craft, stepping up to the plate of touring and playing big festivals. Previous experience would, of course, be preferable. No half measures, no glass-is-half-empty attitudes. Someone who will bring their style and energy to the band and, of course, a fucking killer drummer. Nothing less. There is a new album in the offing, the possibility of standing on the stages of some of the biggest metal festivals in 2011 and, of course, some form of income from those….

"It's preferable they know extreme metal, of course; that's where we came from, but more importantly, the Maiden's, Sabbath's, Motohead's and Thin Lizzy's of this world as that's where the drumming in Primordial has for the most part been holding court. We rehearse in Dublin, of course, so a proximity to there is preferable, but we are not adverse to someone from abroad who can work hard when the time comes and is near enough to a Ryan Air terminal, or a relocation to Dublin is also a possibility."
