My Dying Bride is working on their first new album since 2015's Feel The Misery and have undergone a bit of a lineup change. Drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels, who drummed for the band between 1999 and 2006, and then again from 2017 to 2018, has exited the band due to "unresolvable drumming issues." My Dying Bride has recruited Jeff Singer (Kill II This, ex-Paradise Lost) and are currently in pre-production for the new material.
Read the statement below, which does not discuss what "unresolvable drumming issues" are.
Jeff Singer to drum new My Dying Bride album!!
My Dying Bride have recently had to part ways with Shaun Steels due to unresolvable drumming issues. Jeff Singer (Kill2This, Paradise Lost and Blaze amongst others) has kindly agreed to step in. Since Jeff’s addition the album has (musically) been completed and pre-production is now going great guns, lyrics and vocals are understandably still in the making but the band can prepare for the studio professionally now having 90% of the music in place and all drums complete. A quote from the band simply says “Jeff has been a light in a dark room, he breathlessly and seamlessly plays with the new music and intuitively seems to know what we're asking for, he has removed a lot of unnecessary pressure from the band in an already testing time. At last something good happens” There are no definite recording dates as yet and still no song titles or album title. But it appears the band is forging forward.
Merry Christmas indeed!!
