Rings Of Saturn drummer Mike Caputo quits band to join Brand Of Sacrifice

Rings Of Saturn drummer Mike Caputo has exited the group to join Canadian technical deathcore unit Brand Of Sacrifice full-time.

Caputo has provided the following explanation for his move:

"I'd like to announce that after playing with Rings of Saturn since 2018 I've decided it's time to step down from the band and shift my focus a bit. An opportunity came up for me that I would like to take but might consistently conflict with Rings' schedule. I have decided to take this opportunity that was presented to me. But as to not hinder Rings, who deserves someone who can focus on them full-time, I feel it's best for me to step away.

"I want to thank Lucas for bringing me on and trusting me to do justice to those insane drum parts live on the road, as well as the great opportunities this band has given me. Everyone I have played with during my time in Rings have been and still are good friends to me and I wish them the best. I can't wait for everyone to hear the new instrumental material Lucas and Joel will be putting out soon!

"As for where I'm going...some of you may know I've been doing some tours with Brand of Sacrifice recently, and they have graciously asked me to join them full-time. I'm super excited for everything that we have planned in the near future! Although I didn't have the opportunity to play on any Rings releases, I also want to thank all the Rings' fans for being so accepting and supportive of me over the years with the band, and I hope to see you guys and gals at future shows! Wishing Rings much luck on their new endeavors and looking forward to potentially sharing the bill with them on some shows in the future!"

For their part, Rings Of Saturn had this to say:

"Congratulations to Mike in joining our friends in Brand Of Sacrifice as a full-time member. Mike is an absolutely amazing drummer, huge thanks goes out to him for everything.

"This means that Rings of Saturn is looking for a new drummer to play our European festivals currently booked in August 2022. We will be playing these with our original vocalist, and voice of Embryonic Anomaly, Peter Pawlak. We also have US tour plans beforehand in the summer. We are preferably looking for a US based drummer, over 21, with touring experience, who can play the full Embryonic Anomaly album, and has all the requirements to travel abroad for the Euro fests."

Dudes in these shitty bands love writing a god damn essay about leaving a band. Go back to school nerds.

Faking it in the studio is stoked.

Brand of Sacrifice will never see the success of his brother's band, Sideboob. He might as well just get a regular job.

Mental midget here. I wanna play drums but I'm just too scared to even begin to try! Ponytail guys like Mike Caputo are SO intimidating to someone like me. I mess around tapping out beats at my school desk but I'll never get behind a kit, I guarantee it.
