Canadian prog metal band Protest The Hero have announced that drummer Michael Ieradi will replace Moe Carlson not only through the upcoming album tour, but permanently.
Despite being also the drummer for The Kindred, according to PTH's facebook:
"What's that you say? Mike is already in another band? Yes, he is. He will be playing
in 2 bands on this upcoming tour. He will be opening with his band The Kindred and will
then wrap the night up playing with us. Despite pulling double duty on this tour, he IS the newest member of pth and will hopefully be with us until we hang up the old jazz picks. No
I'm impressed that so many people are complaining about Moe. Moe is a really solid drummer that plays polyrhytms and halvnotes all over the place and can change tempo in an instant along with the rest of the music. Moe is a good drummer for sure. Too bad he'll be replaced now, but glad it's not by Adler, his sound doesn't fit with PtH
