Although we discussed how we wouldn’t do this, and it’s likely no one will notice, I feel compelled to give it some sort of finality. So it’s with no satisfaction that I announce Delusionist is no more. Although it’s not impossible this project may be revived in the future, for now it’s done.
Somehow no matter how inevitable it may be, it still feels strange when a project comes to a conclusion. I don’t think any group of musicians really want to focus on the end because we all want to believe that a project has the potential to go all the way. It’s why musicians do what they do and commit so much time and energy over and over again. However, in the back of our minds we all secretly acknowledge that at some point it will be done. Maybe that’s how it should be, maybe every project needs an end so we can devote the proper energy to some shared goal and then move on.
We’re excited to announce Lorenzo Haidl has joined Delusionist as our new drummer.
Lorenzo provides a high level of technical drumming along with influence ranging from hip-hop, jazz, funk, along with metal and djent. We’re excited to hear the flavor he brings to the new material that we are working on for album two.
With the lineup complete we are not focusing on booking shows for early this Summer. Stay tuned for more updates on shows, new music, and some play-through videos.
