36 Crazyfists announce new drummer and the return of former bassist Mick Whitney
have announced that Kyle Baltus has joined the band as their new drummer, replacing Thomas Noonan who left to pursue new challenges outside of music. The band have also announced the return of Mick Whitney who performed with the band between 1996 and 2008. The official statement can be read below.
We wanted to get in and follow up on our recent show announcements. As most of you know, after playing music with us for the past 18 years, Thomas Noonan has decided to hang up his sticks and pursue new chapters in his life. We love him dearly and wish him great success. If you would like to see his amazing art pieces and possibly purchase one for yourself, check out his page at http://thomas36cf.deviantart.com/.
That all being said we would like to introduce our new drummer. Please welcome our very good friend, Kyle Baltus, to our camp. We have known Kyle for many years and are very excited to have him join the band. He is an absolute BEAST behind the kit and his first shows with the band will be the upcoming August gigs.
We would also like to welcome back Mick Whitney to the band. Words cannot express how stoked we are to have THE BEAR back with us after a 4 year hiatus. Many thanks to our brother Buzzard for rocking with us when Mick had to step down and helping us continue on as a band. We are truly grateful.
In addition to the gigs we are playing in August to celebrate the ten year anniversary of “Bitterness The Star”, we are working diligently to make up the canceled European tour from last year. We plan on crossing the pond to celebrate the anniversary with our euro pals as well!
Lastly, we are writing new music and looking to create the next chapter of the band. Thank you for all the years and years of loyalty to us. We love you all dearly.
