Sleeping With Sirens Announce Split With Drummer Gabe Barham
After 10 years together, Sleeping With Sirens have parted ways with drummer Gabe Barham.
The news came in a statement from the group, who expressed their love for the drummer who had played on every single one of their full length albums. This split can be chalked up to musical differences, as is often the case with departures. There's no bad blood between the two sides and Sleeping With Sirens wished him all the best.
The full statement reads,
Gabe will no longer be a part of Sleeping With Sirens. We all love him, and we've created amazing music together, but in the last year or so we've been growing in different places musically. There are absolutely no hard feelings and we wish Gabe success in all of his future endeavors.
In total, Barham lent his talents to six albums with Sleeping With Sirens, the latest being this year's How It Feels to Be Lost. He joined the group in 2009, the year they were formed, following the brief tenure of original skinsman Alex Kaladjian.
At this time, the group has not revealed who will be sitting behind the kit on their upcoming tour with Bring Me the Horizon and Poppy. The "Threesome" tour kicks off Oct. 10 and you can see the complete list of stops below.
