Held To Ransom
Posted on February 12, 2008Long standing ANYONE drummer Nipples left the band last week due personal commitments and a decision to pursue new avenues. The split is amicable and Nipples remains on good and close terms with the Anyone unit, in fact he stated it as the hardest decision he has ever had to make. Anyone are sad to see Nipples leave but pleased to welcome new drummer RANSOM. Ransom has been a part of the Anyone family for some time, living with the band at the famed Anyone 'Den' in Huntingdon Beach, LA for the past two years. He has toured with the group as Nipples' drum tech and word has it that he hits them skins like an true psychedelic rock fiend!
Here's a message from Frontman Riz Story on the line up change:
We are ecstatic with our new drummer "RANSOM" he is 23 years old and he is a fucking animal as you will soon see. He is from Huntington beach and has been my roommate for two and a half years. Amazingly he learned the entire ANYONE record in one rehearsal and the band is enjoying sounding better than ever. This guys musical prowess is astounding as you will soon see at the UK shows - myself, Static and Ransom can't wait to get over there and play for you all. Nipples has left the band on his own accord and it was a very amicable split. He has left to dedicate himself to other pursuits. We wish him well and thank him for 6 years of good times and good trips!!
See you all soon
Random Fact - Ransom has played with Static before... in an industrial rock project..from Canada.. called Stayte. What does Static have to say on Ransom joining the band? "Ransom fits in perfectly with ANYONE...I truly mean it when I say we have never sounded better..it's amazing..the chemistry..is beautiful.."
