Yeah, we wrote that headline on purpose. Earlier today, Decapitated announced that they’ve found a new drummer. They’ve also announced that they’ve entered the studio to record their sixth album. Their new drummer is actually the same drummer they’ve had with them since January, Michal Lysejko. He joined the band for their European tour with Lamb of God. Here’s the band’s update, taken from their Facebook page:
On March 10, 2014 Polish Tech Death masters DECAPITATED hit Hertz Studio, located at Bialystok in their native Poland, to record their sixth record. The yet untitled creation is set for arelease in September via Nuclear Blast.
In another note, the band also announces drummer Michal Lysejko as a full-time member of DECAPITATED. Michal has already joined the foursome in time for their tour with LAMB OF GOD in January.
Commented guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka: “We would like to share few news with you. All you know that we’ve been quite busy lately. We had some personal changes in the band and also we did I guess the best tours we had; with MESHUGGAH, LAMB OF GOD and CHILDREN OF BODOM. First of all we want to introduce you DECAPITATED new drummer Michal Lysejko. Some of you had a chance to meet him already during tour with LAMB OF GOD this January. Also I want to say THANK YOU to the rest of the people who took a challenge and sent their video for an audition.
Also since January this year we signed worldwide management contract with Continental Concerts & Management. That’s for sure big step and opportunity for us and big challenge. But I guess the most important news for most of you is that after almost nine years we back to Hertz Studio (albums: »Nihility«, »The Negation«, »Organic Hallucinosis«) to record new album which will be released autumn this year. We will inform you about details soon. Keep it touch!!”
