MARTYR drummer Patrice Hamelin, who has previously done session work with DESPISED ICON and SENATE, will join fellow Canadian progressive tech-death giants QUO VADIS on tour and in studio. The announcement is the first in a series of lineup changes for QUO VADIS after the band's September 6 show in Montreal with DESPISED ICON, NEURAXIS, BLINDED BY FAITH and THE PLASMARIFLE. Next week QUO VADIS will reveal the identity of the new vocalist who will join the band on stage for the upcoming series of Canadian shows.
Comments QUO VADIS guitarist Bart Frydrychowicz: "Having Patrice join us on the road is a great honor and I'm privileged to share the stage with a great and talented drummer like him. Pat's musical ability comes to enhance and compliment QUO VADIS' existing material and his playing style is a perfect match. We hope to record at least one new song at 40 West Studio in the next 2-3 weeks so that you have a chance to listen and get to know the new material before hearing it live."
