Ex-Confide Drummer Arin Ilejay Joins Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged Sevenfold have recruited former Confide drummer, Arin Ilejay as the replacement for Mike Portnoy, who left the band last month.

The band gave the following statement:

"We recently asked several friends who knew Jimmy [Sullivan] and his style, and also knew our music and each of our personalities to suggest drummers to tour with us starting this year. Our long time studio drum tech, Mike Fasano, recommended Arin Ilejay. We've rehearsed with Arin and have been impressed with his technical skills, attitude and work ethic. We're very excited to tour with Arin and hope all of you will give him the warm welcome to the family we have."
