MY RUIN Has A New Drummer

Los Angeles rockers MY RUIN have parted ways with drummer Marcelo Palomino and have replaced him with J.D. Flores (HEAVENLY TRIP TO HELL).

Palomino, a former bandmate of MY RUIN singer Tairrie B. in MANHOLE and TURA SATANA, joined the band prior to its last UK tour.

In a recent interview with Norway's Rimfrost magazine, Tairrie stated about Marcelo's departure, "We had a great time with him on our last tour and we even did a MANHOLE song in our set just for fun. We also recorded a live album and filmed a DVD which we're very excited about. He was a huge part of that with us. I adore Marcelo; he is like a brother to me. It was wonderful getting to make up for lost time and be on stage with him again, but his heart is not really into playing drums at this point in his life and we totally understand. We need to play with someone who feels the same passion we do about music and who understand that this is also our business. Who knows?! Maybe he will join us on stage again for a show or tour down the line, just like Matt [LeChevalier, former MY RUIN drummer], who we have remained on good terms with. We seem to be building an arsenal of drummers!!! Right now, we are very happy with the way things are. MY RUIN will always be Mick [Murphy, guitar] I because we are the core of the band and the writers but Chris [Lisee, bass] has been with us for almost four years now and is a part of the band and our family in a real way more than any previous member."

MY RUIN's new album, "Throat Full of Heart", will be released in the U.S. on August 19 through the band's imprint label Rovena Recordings via Redeye USA. The CD, which debuted earlier this year in Europe via Cargo Records UK, is the follow-up to 2005's "The Brutal Language". The new album was recorded at The Hobby Shop in Highland Park, California (owned by producers Mudrock and Scott Gilman) and was co-produced by MY RUIN guitarist Mick Murphy and Duane Burda.

Like the European release, the U.S. packaging will consist of a digipack which includes "Tell Your God To Ready For Blood", MY RUIN's two-and-a-half-hour DVD featuring two music videos, behind-the-scenes and in-the-studio footage of the band's recording sessions as well as a mini-movie by vocalist Tairrie B documenting her 2006 car accident from injury to recovery.
