Winds of Plague has announced the departure of drummer Art Cruz due to "creative differences." Frontman Johnny Plague says, "After many years of having Art Cruz with us we have decided it's best for both parties involved to go our separate ways. Art is a great drummer and I'm sure he will be back behind the drums one way or another soon." Meanwhile, Cruz had the following to say: "I'm very thankful for the experience. I love those dudes. I will continue to play drums and on the business side, I am currently pursuing artist management. To keep up with what I'm doing, follow me on twitter at" A permanent replacement has yet to be named, though band friend Brandon Gallindo performed on the band's newly recorded album and will accompany them on the All Stars Tour.
