Impale To Split With Drummer Phil Messina

Evergreen Park, IL based act Impale has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with drummer Phil Messina:

"Hey guys this is Phil. The band and I have been talking for the past few weeks, and I want to announce my intentions. I plan on playing the remaining shows for till the end of the year, possibly recording a few songs, and as of 2012 I will no longer be the drummer for Impale. I've decided I want to move on and try new things in my life, but that does not mean the band is finished.

"They are wanting to start auditioning new drummers as soon as possible, and continue to dominate the Chicago metal scene. I love all these guys, all of them are still my best friends, and I am not done supporting them. I am also by far NOT done with playing music or metal. I just want to see where life takes me, and try new things.

"Thank you to everyone who came and checked me out with this awesome and amazing band for the past 10ish years (yup that long!). Thank you to my best friends, the band, for making me grow as a musician and giving me opportunities that will stay with me forever. IF IT WASN'T FOR IMPALE, I WOULD NOT BE PLAYING MUSIC! Please still support them, support the scene, and audition for them. See you at the last few shows!
