Chris Hakius splits from OM
(Om's Al Cisnerosto and Chris Hakius)
Om was a two piece...but now that drummer Chris Hakius has officially left the band it doesn't leave much for the riff master Al Cisnerosto play around with. Sounds like Al's searching for a new kit-pounder, though, according to a statement Om released today:
"Om is continuing forward with a new drummer and working on a new recording. Please check the band's website and myspace page for updates.
A live vinyl only LP "Om - Live at Jerusalem" will be forthcoming. This is
Chris Hakius' final release with the group.
I personally apologize to east coast fans who planned on coming out to the
shows. Please know that Om will be back in your area later in 08.
Thank you to all of you. Live dates resume in late spring. There is a LOT of
new material on its way.
Shrinebuilder is also forging ahead.
See you all soon." - Al/Om
