Swedish riff lords Grand Magus have a new drummer.
Following the departure of drummer Sebastian “Seb” Sippola (who has left the band for personal reasons), Grand Magus have called on Ludwig “Ludde” Witt (Spiritual Beggars, Firebird, Shining) to take over behind the kit.
“I’m very happy to announce that I, Ludwig Witt, am the new drummer of Grand Magus,” Witt says.
“I’ve known [guitarist/vocalist] JB for over ten years and I’ve been a fan of Grand Magus since day one, so it’s great to be on board. At the moment I’m learning all the classic Grand Magus songs and I get a huge buzz from playing along to songs like ‘Kingslayer’ and ‘Like The Oar Strikes The Water’ so I can’t wait to get out and play the stuff live together with the new stuff from our new album, The Hunt. See you on the road.”
A press release claims Sippola “leaves Grand Magus on good terms, and says he’s excited to hear The Hunt once it’s completed.”
The Hunt will hit stores in North America on June 5 through Nuclear Blast Records.
