Ne Obliviscaris announced they parted ways with drummer Daniel Presland in February of this year. Presland had drummed for the band since 2005 and has since confirmed he drummed on Exul. As for his future activities, Presland said he plans to stay in music and will continue on with his new band Black Lava. Both Presland and the band said they remain good friends and asked that fans support both bands equally.
Ne Obliviscaris said in a statement, "Dan has been an absolute rock behind the kit for this band for so many years, so many songs, so many tours… Dan has decided to move on to other things and say goodbye to his time in NeO, but he'll always be a huge part of how we arrived at this point here today and we are so grateful to have shared so many special moments together over the years."
