Florida-based metal band INFERNAEON has announced the addition of several new members, including drummer Jeramie Kling, formerly of THE ABSENCE.Commented frontman Brian Werner: "After that last PYREXIA tour, we had a cancer within the band that needed to be removed forcefully, which threatened everything that this band is trying to accomplish. Our drummer at the time ended up getting the job with MALEVOLENT CREATION, so you can't fault him for that. Sam and Brian just wanted to go in different directions and we wish them the best of luck; seriously, we hope those guys find what they're looking for. We have Chris Defaut from DIVINE EMPIRE back in the band, who was an original member and wrote most of these songs anyways as well as Jeramie from THE ABSENCE, who is straight-up a seriously cool motherfucker and one of the best drummers I've heard in a while." INFERNAEON has also welcomed to the fold guitar player and longtime friend Erick Leider to replace Sam Molina, and Dave Stein on keyboards. Added Werner: "These guys are some of the most dedicated musicians I've worked with in a while. They take their trade seriously which makes working with them so much easier than before. I've known Erick for the better part of 10 years and when I asked him if he wanted to do this, he quit his job, cleaned out his bank account, left his woman and moved to the other side of the country to be a part of this. Not to mention Dave is Kevin's brother, so it's cool to have some blood in the band." INFERNAEON is currently on tour supporting its latest album, "A Symphony of Suffering", on Prosthetic Records,. The band will support SKINLESS and VITAL REMAINS for the week and then finish up with FIERCE ALLEGIANCE on their way home to Florida." "We have a shitload of touring coming up this summer and well into the fall," said Werner. "[We] can't announce it yet until everything confirms, but we should be very active for the rest of the year."
