British death metal supergroup Memoriam, which is comprised of members of Bolt Thrower, Benediction and Cerebral Fix, has announced that they will part company with drummer Andy Whale after two shows in Germany at the end of this month. A statement from the band reads as follows:

“Those who know Andy will know he is a fiercely proud family man and father. He wants to be with the first love of his life, which is his partner and children, more and we cannot see a better and more admirable reason for a band departure. We are sure that Andy will continue playing in the future but we think he may well follow his more punk routes than death metal. This is not an acrimonious departure and we are sure that in the future he will jump behind the kit again with Memoriam on stage for a bit of a bash!

“So, on the 28th and 29th of September in Germany (Erfurt and Oberhausen), Andy will be doing his last live shows with Memoriam. So those that can, please come along and enjoy the events, join our party, have fun and give Andy a right good send-off. All other shows will still go ahead, but for now, let’s all wish Andy well in whatever endeavour he chooses to move on with.

“We have achieved so much in such a short time together as a band and our love for you will never diminish. Our love and respect, always.”

Incite have an as-yet unannounced January release planned for their new effort “Built To Destroy” through Minus Head Records. The group recorded the outing with producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die) and have debuted a song from it called “Ruthless Ways” in advance streaming below.

Says Incite vocalist Richie Cavalera of the single:

“Our new song ‘Ruthless Ways‘ is about being a piece of sh*t and it finally catching up with you. It’s the exact vibe we wanted to explode out the gate with. The song is brutal, catchy, and hella groovy. It’s a good feel for what to expect on this new album. Huge riffs, massive drums, bass for days, and a new vocal feel that to me is pure evil and nasty. We kept it real heavy – get your headbang on.”

The band are currently out tour the U.S. with Lody Kong:

09/14 San Diego, CA – Space Bar
09/16 Oakland, CA – Elbo Room Jack London
09/17 Sacramento, CA – Blue Lamp
09/19 Portland, OR – High Water Mark
09/20 Seattle, WA – El Corazon (Funhouse)
09/22 Boise, ID – The Shredder
09/25 Denver, CO – Streets of London
09/27 Las Vegas, NV – Beauty Bar
09/28 Phoenix, AZ – Club Red
