Candiria Confirm Departure Of Drummer Ken Schalk


After a period of on and off appearances, Candiria have confirmed the departure of drummer Ken Schalk from their lineup. Speaking on that, guitarist John LaMacchia told ‘As The Story Grows‘:

“I don’t know if you know this, but Ken is not in the band anymore. He is in L.A. and he’s still a highly active musician. But, you know he has a family now and he can not… It’s impossible for him to be as prolific a songwriter and recording artist as he used to be in the late 90’s into the mid-2000’s, it’s just simply not possible for him anymore.”

Thus, you can expect to see Danny Grossarth sitting behind the kit at the band’s future live appearances. A new album from the outfit titled “While They Were Sleeping” is reportedly slated for an October 07th release date on Metal Blade.
