One Out, One In
theREIGN’s lineup has been relatively stable for the last few years with no comings and goings since the release of Where Jesus Touches The Earth. However, drummer Ivan Carruthers recently decided to hang up his sticks (as far as theREIGN is concerned, at least) so that he could free up time to concentrate on his other church commitments.
I would like to place on record my thanks for all the hard work, time effort, support and insight (not to mention skin banging) that Ivan and his various drumkits have give to us over the last few years, and we will certainly miss his presence with us as both a musician and a friend.
But … things have to move on, and with a season of Rock Eucharists already in the diary, replacing Ivan has been a priority for the band over the last couple of months, and we are pleased to announce that we will be joined for our Spring season by Kev Sargeson, former drummer with Destiny Calling (among other Hull Christian bands).
theREIGN are delighted that Kev has agreed to join us, and hope that he feels at home with the band and chooses to stick around beyond the Spring season.
We would value everyone’s prayers for the coming events, especially for Kev as he gets to grips with what we are doing.
