Huge bummer. He was their best drummer by a mile, and a big part of their early 00s-present revitalization.
Did not expect this...
Well I hope they'll find someone just as good as Brooks, because he is a great drummer.
Wonder what he'll do now. Mass Mental is only an on-and-off thing and they have one gig this month but that's about it. And Tenacious D are inactive atm too.
14 year old me would have been pretty bummed about this.
That's a shame, he was easily one of the best parts of BR.
crap. jamming them today
Awww, I loved his work on New Maps of Hell.
Here's hoping Pete Finestone would consider coming back; it sounds like they're falling apart.
Rumor is he left to join Avenged Sevenfold... if that's true, good for him but that's a pretty big step down musically.
isn't br way bigger than a7x
he announced this on Monday.
I made this audition tape on Friday:
If Brooks joins A7X he won't stay for long. He's way too good for them and if his creativity and technical ability gets stifled in the way Arin Illejay's was (his stuff with Confide was great but people think he's crap because of HTTK) then he'll leave quickly. A7X didn't exactly treat Arin very well either cos they don't want to have anyone threatening to top The Rev's status.
Damn, never want to see that. Bad Religion is easily my favorite band of all time, and he's played on some of my favorite albums.
Avenged Sevenfold? Say it ain't so.
This is such a bummer!
Digging: Mogwai - Rave Tapes
Been confirmed as new Avenged Sevenfold drummer.
Congrats to him for getting a spot on A7x but shame on him for being a part of A7x.
Maybe he can breahe some life into them with his drumming.
Damn, seems like a step down, IMO
A colossal step down.
With that being said, City of Evil is still a pretty great record.
He's the new A7X drummer...I can't wait for their next allbum
Definitely a step down.
Going from Bad Religion to A7X is like choosing a tesco value ready meal over steak and chips with onion rings.
Honestly though, the a7x drummer always brings something new to their table. When Mike Portnoy drummed on nightmare, you got tracks like save me, which basically sounded like a blend of a7x and dream theater. I'm actually pretty interested with what he could bring to the band, because it could turn out being pretty cool
