Over the past year or so nothing but silence has come from Canadian progressive death metalers Augury. Right after they released their epic album “Fragmented Evidence“, their bassist and drummer suddenly departed from the band. I am sure that this caused a damper in the bands touring schedule as well as their writing process considering we haven’t heard anything from them since then.
Well good news is that Augury is back in fucking action. Both the original bassist, Forest Lapointe, and drummer, Etienne Gallo, have decided to come back to the band. YAY! The band recently issued a statement about the good news –
“It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of [bassist] Dominic ‘Forest’ Lapointe and [drummer] Étienne Gallo to Augury. The writing process has begun with all the original members, and the band is focused 100% on the new album.
“We wish to thank Antoine Baril, Christian Pacaud, and Sébastien Pittet, for their loyal services and for the incredible help they’ve been to the band, as well as live musicians Tommy McKinnon and Robin Stone.
“The time has come for Augury to birth a new interplanetary opus, faithful to the original spirit of the group, which made its reputation with its two first albums, Concealed and Fragmentary Evidence.”
Fuck yes! A new album is on the way. I can’t wait to get high and jam it. Until then, enjoy some classic Augury!
