Sirenia have announced drummer Michael Brush as Jonathan Perez’s official replacement. Perez left the group two years ago to focus on his family as the group have recruited Brush to tour with them since last October.
The band issued the following statement:
“It’s been 2 years now that we have been without a fixed drummer in the band, after Jonathan left to get more time with his family. Thanks again to Jonathan for the great times we had over the years.
We are happy and proud to introduce our new drummer Michael Brush. Many of you have already met him as he has been touring with us since October last year. Please give Michael a warm welcome!”#sirenia #drummer #symphonicmetal #norwegianmetal #gothic#goth #gothicmetal #metal #femalefronted #norway #uk#birmingham #MichaelBrush”
Sirenia released their overall ninth studio album, Arcane Astral Aeons, in October 2018 via Napalm Records. This marked the Norwegian symphonic/gothic metal outfit’s second record to feature vocalist Emmanuelle Zoldan as she replaced Ailyn back in 2016.
