California death metallers Winds Of Plague have announced that they have officially parted ways with their drummer, Art Cruz, due to creative differences. The band wishes Cruz the very best in his future endeavors.

“After many years of having Art Cruz with us we have decided its best for both parties involved to go our separate ways,” states vocalist Johnny Plague. “Art is a great drummer and I’m sure he will be back behind the drums one way or another soon.” Art Cruz adds, “I’m very thankful for the experience. I love those dudes. I will continue to play drums and on the business side, I am currently pursuing artist management. To keep up with what I’m doing, follow me on twitter at”

The band is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to Against The World. They commented, “We just finished recording our new album in which we recruited long time friend Brandon Gallindo to record as well as fill in for The All Stars Tour starting this week! See you soon!!!”
