The Gates Of Slumber Recruits New Drummer "Cool Clyde" Paradis

The Gates of Slumber has announced autumn U.S. tour dates in support of its album "Hymns of Blood & Thunder." The Indianapolis power trio will kick off the string of shows on October 14th in Richmond, VA and will perform in Baltimore, Brooklyn, NY and Pittsburgh over the course of the short run of dates.

The upcoming tour dates will also serve as the introduction of The Gates of Slumber’s new drummer, "Cool Clyde" Paradis. A New Orleans native and Hurricane Katrina survivor, Paradis joins The Gates of Slumber hot off stints in Sourvein, Substance Abuse, and the New Orleans blues act T-bone and The Rhythm Makers.

"We’re stoked about the future of TGoS with the addition of 'Cool Clyde' on drums," commented The Gates of Slumber bassist Jason McCash. "All three of us are speaking the same language and have the same focus and drive; the legion has become one. It’s like having an adrenaline shot to the heart and exhaling for the first time after wards, seeing new possibilities. For us as a band, the best is yet to come."

The band's upcoming tour dates are as follows:

10/14 Richmond, VA Triple Triangle Lounge
10/15 Baltimore, MD Sidebar Tavern (* As part of “Defenders of the Old” Fest)
10/16 Brooklyn, NY Union Pool (w/ Hour of 13)
10/18 Pittsburgh, PA 31st Street Pub
