Zum Jahres- der Drummerwechsel: Josh Freese geht, Ilan Rubin kommt.

Ilan Rubin

8 October 2008:
"Josh Freese fans be sure to check out a show on the upcoming North American leg of the tour, as sadly they will be the last ones he’s playing with us. He informed me he’s leaving the tour at the end of this year. Yes, we are still dear friends. No, I’m not sure what we are going to do." [ninblogs.wordpress.com]

"With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. We recently invited him out to rehearse with us and he blew US away - the perfect guy to pick up the sticks after Josh leaves us at the end of the year." [ninblogs.wordpress.com]
