Cave In part ways w/ drummer

Cave In drummer JR Connors is reportedly no longer part of the group. Connors was originally sidelined by a severe wrist injury and is currently living in Germany. Converge drummer Ben Koller has been filling in as of late and has seemingly joined the band on a permanent basis, though no official statement has been released.

That Converge drummer dude is pretty good. What does this mean for Converge? Wait...don't really care that much.

So...what's Converge gonna do now? I know, they can get Dave Witte to drum for them, his schedule is pretty much empty...

wolfpack 7/27/2005 10:32:19 PM

this band went to shit

Jay 7/27/2005 10:44:43 PM

haha yeah, try listening to the two new songs they're playing. and oh yeah, grow out of your high school mindstate. jerk.

What it means for Converge is that they suck, and Force Fed Glass should get back together.

gozer 7/28/2005 12:19:17 AM

they should just become one super band already. you cant hear news about one, without getting the other.

Simon_Belmont 7/28/2005 1:19:40 AM

i was under the impression JR was coming back after he recovered, but i dont actually know anything

DrPepper 7/28/2005 1:20:16 AM

This news article wasn't researched very well. A local Boston paper ran an article about this discussing how Ben was only temporary due to JR's location and injury. Nothing about him not being in the band anymore. It's been reference elsewhere.

dillongiedt 7/28/2005 1:47:14 AM

HumanSteamroller 7/28/2005 6:10:31 AM

This fcking sucks. JR was an excellent drummer.

eadup 7/28/2005 7:53:38 AM

yeah JR's the man. but yeah, ben will fill in admirably I'm sure....he just seems kind of spazzy for cave in.

webmaster 7/28/2005 8:19:03 AM

DrPepper - actually, as of a day ago, someone who follows the band very closely said the following "ive talked to JR and 2 of the other guys, and he definitely isnt in the band anymore."

edgehog 7/28/2005 9:31:26 AM

actual cave in news...huh

wyldweasil 7/28/2005 10:07:17 AM

this news is totally cave in it was on yesterday...hahahaha but seriously, I still can't believe they don't have their original drummer anymore....

greaser 7/28/2005 10:27:31 AM

emoxgay 7/28/2005 4:12:01 AM "holy sshit. 1. i love cave in (even new stuff) 2 when did everyone turn their backs to converge" Don't like new cave in but no shit. fcking trendy scenesters around here.

Lilykoto 7/28/2005 11:01:10 AM

well damn!

whitelambpowergoat 7/28/2005 12:29:38 PM

what ever happened to that cd they were both working on

JohnnyJohnny 7/28/2005 2:22:02 PM

CAVE IN shreds converge. JR was an excellent drummer but this guy should be able to hold it down.

anaturaldisaster 7/28/2005 2:37:18 PM

Both great bands, I really don't understand why it's not cool to like Converge anymore. That being said, Coalesce > both of them

Lilykoto 7/28/2005 2:47:16 PM

haha..I fcking LOVE cave in, but wouldn't exactly say they "shred" Converge, esp. considering what their newer material has come out sounding like...but that's just my opinon and you know what they say bout those..

Jay 7/28/2005 3:01:30 PM

At least your not an jerk who thinks his opinion is gold.

Mikey216 7/28/2005 3:35:02 PM

Tom know his Cave In news, next time cite your source.

new_york_lesbians 7/28/2005 3:42:41 PM

ben koller rocks my socks

WeedySpecies 7/28/2005 5:03:00 PM

................good times?

margaretyang 7/28/2005 9:34:09 PM

do i hear converge breaking up!????

youxfailxme 7/28/2005 10:41:53 PM

ben is a really good drummer, thats a huge blow to converge. but i don't think they are going to break up, just find a replacement.

deathmetalmonty 7/29/2005 12:54:20 PM

from the converge site...,,,,,This in no way effects his efforts in Converge and other side projects of Ben. It's just another interesting thing to do with music for Ben and we are excited that he is playing with the band.

Jay 7/30/2005 4:09:25 PM

its funny how everytime newa about Cave in is posted here, its posted on the Cave in Board weeks before. Site sources, jerks.

xedgexenglishx 8/1/2005 12:35:27 PM
