Yashira announce new drummer, set to record second LP
A year after the tragic death of drummer Seth Howard, Florida's Yashira have announced the addition of Ryan O'Neal to their line-up on drums. Additionally, Yashira will enter Silver Bullet Studios in Connecticut late this month to begin tracking their second full-length album with producer Greg Thomas (Shai Hulud, Make Do And Mend). The outing will be available later this year through Good Fight Music. Here's the official word:
"We've spent much of this past year reflecting and reorganizing to continue moving forward with the vision the four of us created. Not only is this something we feel we need to do, but also what we know Seth would want us to do. We're joined now by our good friend Ryan O'Neal (Seraph/The Light, Autolith), a truly incredible talent and all-around great person. We're grateful for him jumping in to continue this venture with us. "We will be heading to Connecticut at the end of January to record our second full length at Silver Bullet Studios with Gregory James Thomas. It will be released via Good Fight Music. We've spent a great deal of time making this collection of songs something we're all very proud of. In light of last year's events, we were forced into being the most honest versions of ourselves and the direction of our new material is an absolute reflection of this. We hope you enjoy and resonate with the next stages of this journey. "This year has revealed much about our collective abilities. By using lessons learned through loss to continue pushing forward, we've realized all of this is much larger than ourselves. To everyone who has stuck by us, we could never properly express our gratitude. The support we've received from you all has opened our eyes to how truly special this thing we've built really is. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much."
