The band have been tight-lipped about the new members’ identities despite accidentally revealing Venturella through the music video for “The Devil In I”. Weinberg was still very much a rumor, though most fans were fairly certain he was the new drummer. It’s all out in the open now. This apparently resulted due to manner in which Costa was fired. If more details surface we’ll be sure to let you know.
