JON OLIVA'S PAIN drummer Christopher Kinder has checked in with the following update:
"Lots going on in the JOP camp. We are reviewing more complete demos for the new album. Lots of very heavy and dark material for sure.
We have decided that the sold-out ProgPower Festival in Atlanta will be our only show this year. Glenn and the fans wanted a very special once in a lifetime show and we feel it is only right that we give them want they demanded.
Welcome our new guitarist, Bill Hudson...
Bill has the toured the world alongside the likes of VITAL REMAINS, NIGHTRAGE (filling in for OZZY OSBOURNE's guitarist, Gus G), CIRCLE II CIRCLE, EMPHATIC, CELLADOR, POWER QUEST and many others. He is a world-class guitar player and truly a welcome addition to the JOP lineup. We are very much looking forward to rehearsals in the coming months. PP is going to awesome!
Cheers one and all...more news as it happens."
