San Francisco-based classic doom metallers ORCHID have parted ways with drummer Carter Kennedy.

The split happened last July after the band had returned home from Europe. ORCHID would like to thank Carter for his contributions to their 2 full lengths, 4 EPs, and numerous live concerts and tours and wish him all the best in his future musical endeavors.

In August of 2015, the band began working with Bay Area native and long time friend, drummer Ted (TJ) Cox.

Currently, ORCHID is writing and demoing new material for an as of yet untitled full length album due out on Nuclear Blast in 2017.

The band’s latest release, the EP Sign Of The Witch, is available and contains 4 brand new tracks – get your copy here:
