Hatebreed parts ways w/ drummer

Following events at a recent Ozzfest show in St. Louis, Hatebreed apparently fired their drummer, Cliff Ross. Here's a statement from the band: "Yes its true people. Rigg Ross is no longer the drummer for Hatebreed. Rigg was not in a car accident. He is fine. Someone said that in order to buy some time and not miss our Ozzfest show in St. Louis. We had no clue where he was. Well, needless to say we missed the show and Rigg was fired. This was the last straw for him. We hate going through this shit over & over again but it had to be this way and it fuckin sucks and its very painful for all of us. I really dont want to get into talking about our personal lives but we loved Rigg & he is an amazing talent and a genuinely good dude but we could not go on with him. We wish him the best of luck and we will all still remain friends with him. We will post again soon to let you all know who will be filling his spot."
