Der Drummer verlässt seinen Schemel.

Nach inzwischen 21 Jahren schnürt KENSEL sein Päckchen und verlässt den Hocker bei HIGH ON FIRE. In einem von ihm veröffentlichten Instagram-Post (s.u.) erklärt er seine Beweggründe. KENSEL war Gründungsmitglied von HIGH ON FIRE, spielte allerdings seit Mai keinerlei Auftritte mehr mit den Stoner Metal Giganten.

As a founding member of High On Fire, I feel blessed to have spent the last 21 years traveling around the world pursuing my childhood dream to write and play music. After eight albums, countless tours, and a Grammy win, I am very thankful for what we have been able to accomplish as a band. Being a full time professional musician can have its challenges. One gets through those challenges with patience, hard work and perseverance. After much consideration, it is time for me to announce that I will no longer be performing with High On Fire. I will now be focusing on new opportunities and spending time with my family. I would like to sincerely thank all of our fans for your support throughout the years. Without you, none of this would have been possible. Lastly, I would like to wish my band-mates the best of luck in the future. Des Kensel. #highonfire #deskensel #highonfireband @highonfireband
