Rings of Saturn have announced the addition of Jungle Rot drummer Jesse Beahler (pictured above) to their ranks. From their Facebook page:

It’s not clear yet what this means for Beahler’s future with Jungle Rot, but even if he’s leaving that band, I don’t think it’s too big a deal — he’s only been with them since 2011’s Kill on Command (in fact, he was five when JR released their first album), so it’s not as though he’s their creative center or anything.

What I am quite curious about is whether or not this will help Rings of Saturn’s reputation. Whereas RoS have been accused of  recording their albums at half speed, I’ve never heard anyone question the musicianship of any member of Jungle Rot. Will Beahler raise the bar for the entire band? Or this gonna be a super-easy gig for him?

Guess we’ll find out soon enough! You can tour dates for Summer Slaughter here.
