We are very happy to announce that our good friend Michael Kadnar
from New York will be the new face behind the drums of Downfall of Gaia
and all of us couldn't be more excited to have him on board!
We got to know Mike on our last tour through the United States
with his other band Black Table and the chemistry just felt right!
Around that time we had no idea that we will meet up again so soon!
It might sound weird to some people to add a drummer from New York to a band
that's based in Germany, but for us it feels like the right and best decision!
Plans for 2014 have been made and the flights have been booked!
Some amazing stuff is coming up in the next couple of months and
we are looking forward to a new chapter!
The songwriting for a new record will start in a few weeks
and a new record can be expected for later this year!
Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes
