Saturn is losing another ring. Details after the jump.
“Aliencore” tech death band Rings of Saturn is now in the market for a new guitar player. Joel Omans made the announcement of his departure Tuesday on the band’s Facebook Page.
“I would like to announce that after 5 years of being with Rings of Saturn I am stepping down from my guitarist position. I am at a different place in my life personally and musically and have my ambitions pointed towards a different direction. Thank you to everyone who has supported myself and every member of the band past and present. I wish everyone involved the best of luck with their future endeavors. I will be announcing details on my new project in the near future but until then I hope you all enjoy the recent effort from myself and the rest of ROS in Lugal Ki En. Peace and love, see you all soon.”
While Rings of Saturn is no stranger to personnel changes, having gone through numerous drummers, bassists, and a couple of singers, Joel has been an island of stability in the line-up almost since the inception. It’s unclear what the band’s plans are for replacing Omans but of course the Interwebs are already lighting up with people making audition videos. Keep an eye on us here at Heavy Blog and we will update you on the search for a new guitarist and for details on Joel’s future projects.
