Sacred Oath Drummer To Miss Upcoming Tour Due To Spinal Injury
Drummer Kenny Evans, who has been with Sacred Oath since recording the band’s debut “A Crystal Vision” in 1987, has suffered a severe injury to his spine and requires surgery. As a result, he will be unable to perform in the fall US tour in October.
“We’re all very worried about him,” said bandleader and singer Rob Thorne in an interview with DJ Roger Lotring on 91.7 WHUS in Connecticut. “We were hoping he could rehabilitate without surgery, but after the last show we did in New Haven he couldn’t walk for almost a week. He’s in serious, serious pain.”
For the tour, Sacred Oath has hired Chilean drummer Ignacio Orellana. Ignacio has been part of many projects and bands such as Pirosaint and Downfire (US). “This is a temporary replacement, and we’re all hopeful that Kenny will recover from surgery and be able to record the next Sacred Oath album,” said Thorne. “We’ve been together for so long, I can’t imagine an album without him. But Ignacio has been a blessing. He is a fantastic drummer, knows the material, and most importantly, is sensitive to the situation. We’re confident the tour will be strong.”
