    THEOCRACY: DRUMMER FOR NEW ALBUM ANNOUNCED

    Athens, Georgia-based melodic metal band Theocracy is happy to announce that original drummer Shawn Benson will record the drums on their highly anticipated fourth album. Benson played drums on 2011's As the World Bleeds and 2008's Mirror of Souls, as well as the 2013 re-release of Theocracy's self-titled debut album.

    The band are in the early stages of recording, and are excited to showcase Benson's unique style on their upcoming release, which will be their third on Swedish label Ulterium Records. Below is studio footage of Benson playing one of the new songs.

    Theocracy recently returned from a brief tour in Scandinavia, including their first performance in Sweden, with Halcyon Way drummer Ernie Topran filling in on the drums.

    Former drummer Patrick Nickell quit Theocracy last November after recording the Christmas single "Night of Silence,” and the band wishes him well in his future endeavors. No decision has been made regarding a permanent replacement.

    This is awesome news. Even if he's not going to be touring with them, and even if it's just for one more album, it will be good to hear him on the drums again. :)

    I don't think the label has given a release date yet.

    I'm still waiting for the Japanese bonus version of the self-titled re-release.
