The Black Dahlia Murder drummer Shannon Lucas announced that he is leaving the band, effective immediately. He had a part in finding his replacement, Alan Cassidy, for the Dethklok tour, but says BDM is still searching for a permanent basher. At the moment, Lucas is working on a side project with Adam D. of Killswitch Engage and Geroge "Corpsegrinder" Fisher of Cannibal Corpse.
In addition, Lucas is opening a tattoo shop outside of Richmond, Virginia with his wife. Check out the video below, for an explanation from the drummer himself.
