Man, what a weekend! I am bushed. I have an apartment I need to clean, laundry I need to load, and a dishwasher to run. AND I have all these posts to write for you fine folks. My head is spinning.
So, yeah — change has come to Leng Tch’e.
Tony Van den Eynde is out as Leng Tch’e’s drummer, and Oliver Coppens is in. This, according to a statement from the band.
“After 4 years, the time has come to say goodbye to Tony behind the drumkit and welcome the newest addition to the Razorgrind camp: Olivier Coppens,” says the band. “Be sure to come out to our tour with Origin and Psycroptic to see Olivier in action!”
I wonder what the fuck happened. I mean, they don’t explain why they had to say goodbye to Tony, and we don’t get to hear Tony’s side of the story. Something smells fishy, and it’s not my upper lip.
For his part, Olivier said the following: “I am beyond stoked to be part of this band and would like to thank my new band members, my family and everybody who supports me. Can’t wait to crush and destroy, see you on the road!”
I’d almost bet we’ll get a statement from Tony within the next few days that offers his side of things. I hate being left to wonder why. Fucking sucks.
