Please give a warm welcome to our new face behind the drums: Max Siegmund. He is an old friend of ours and motivated to fill the vacant place behind the drums. We are sure that his broad experience in playing live, teaching drums as well as in the field of recording will be a great contribution to the existing lineup.
The recordings for the new album are also progressing and the first drumtrack has just been recorded last night. We are as excited as you are how it will turn out!

As you guys already know, we are currently in the process of writing and recording a new album. We are really excited about what we have come up with so far!
What you guys might not know is that 3 of us, Markus, Ole and I (Martin) are also finishing our masters in the meantime. And this is where things get tricky. To make a long story short, Ole was not able to fulfill his needs as a drummer and a student with the time, heart and dedication these things have to be done with.
So Ole and the rest of the band had to take this tough decision and agreed mutually to go our separate ways regarding Fire on Dawson. Letting a band member go is like ending a relationship, it’s not one of the nicest moments in our lives. That’s why the remaining 3 of us are happy and proud that we are still good friends with Ole and we will continue to follow our passion for music. Ole will always be an important part of the Fire on Dawson family for us and we are very thankful for that.
But what is happening with the new album? Who is going to be the new drummer of Fire on Dawson? These are both pretty relevant and exciting questions which we will give you the answers to in the next few days. But this post is dedicated to our friend Ole.
