Winds of Plague are getting ready to hit the road for ‘The All Stars Tour’ next month, but when they do, there will be a new face behind the drumkit.


Singer Johnny Plague reveals that drummer Art Cruz has officially left the band due to creative differences. Even though they didn’t agree on direction, it appears to be an amicable parting of ways.

Plague explained, “After many years of having Art Cruz with us we have decided its best for both parties involved to go our separate ways. Art is a great drummer and I’m sure he will be back behind the drums one way or another soon.”

Meanwhile, Cruz added, “I’m very thankful for the experience. I love those dudes. I will continue to play drums and on the business side, I am currently pursuing artist management. To keep up with what I’m doing, follow me on twitter at”

The group announced that longtime friend Brandon Gallindo recently joined them in the studio to help out on their ‘Against the World’ album and will continue filling in for the upcoming tour, which begins Aug. 3 in Phoenix.
