Om was a two piece...but now that drummer Chris Hakius has officially left the band it doesn't leave much for the riff master Al Cisnerosto play around with. Sounds like Al's searching for a new kit-pounder, though, according to a statement Om released today:

"Om is continuing forward with a new drummer and working on a new recording.

Please check the band's website and myspace page for updates.

A live vinyl only LP "Om - Live at Jerusalem" will be forthcoming. This is

Chris Hakius' final release with the group.

I personally apologize to east coast fans who planned on coming out to the

shows. Please know that Om will be back in your area later in 08.

Thank you to all of you. Live dates resume in late spring. There is a LOT of

new material on its way.

Shrinebuilder is also forging ahead.

See you all soon." - Al/Om

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
