Cute is What We Aim For front man Shaant Hacikyan has informed fans that former Every Time I Die skinsman Mike Novak will record and tour as the band’s new drummer.
In an interview with Alternative Press, Hacikyan discusses Novak’s introduction to the group.
“When I decided that I needed to begin [making demos of] these songs in the studio, I knew I needed the expertise of a great drummer. It just so happens that we share some mutual friends, so I asked him to help me record the demos. We started working together, realized we come from a common background of "been there, done that" and now we're home. Using this connection, we decided we could do it again if we tried. The cool thing about Novak is that, [growing up in] Buffalo, I've had posters of ETID on my walls since I was a young teen. I don't know how I got this lucky,” he told AP.
Novak recently announced the break-up of his previous musical venture, Deadly Animals.
