The Gates Of Slumber Splits With Drummer J. Clyde Paradis

The Gates Of Slumber has announced that former drummer "Iron" Bob Fouts will sit behind the kit on the band's next U.S. tour. The band has parted amicably with J. Clyde Paradis, who recorded and toured behind last year's "The Wretch" (Rise Above Records). Fouts drummed for the band on previous releases "Conqueror" (2008) and "Hymns of Blood and Thunder" (2009), which both landed in Decibel Magazine's "Best Albums of the Year" lists.

Band founder Karl Simon (guitar / vocals) and longtime comrade-at-arms Jason McCash (bass / backing vocals) invited Fouts to fill-in for their upcoming tour with Hammers of Misfortune, which kicks off July 18th in Chicago. "We had a lot of good times together with Cool Clyde and created a massive album that will last the ages however now we are just personally headed in different directions," said Simon in a statement.

"I'm really stoked to hit the road again with our long time friend and former member Bob Fouts and I am really looking forward to see what tomorrow may bring!" added McCash.
