London progressive metallers Exist Immortal have confirmed Charlie Bines as their new drummer.
Frontman Meyrick De la Fuente commented on the line up change:
“Unfortunately Fergus Gardiner has parted ways with Exist Immortal in order to focus on other things. This is an amicable split there are no hard feelings and we are all still good friends. We will continue to support him in any future endeavours.
However, pushing onwards, we would like to welcome Charlie Bines into the band. Some may have already seen him playing with us at the past couple of shows.
Charlie was really our first choice of replacement when it was decided that Fergus would not be continuing. I have known him for a few months and worked with him producing his bands EP, which is where I first saw his skills as a drummer. His talent as both a drummer and a songwriter will bring something fresh to the band. We look forward to what the future holds.”
