Billy Talent fans have always known that Aaron Solowoniuk, the drummer, has been dealing with multiple sclerosis for more than fifteen years. Fortunately, though, the band has been doing well enough for him to afford the drugs that keep the disease at bay.
Sadly, he’s had a relapse which has forced him to change up his medications. Until things get back in order, he will be replaced by Jordan Hastings of Alexisonfire. This also means he will be unable to play on the next Billy Talent record.
However, he will be involved in the making of the album in a different way. He’ll be documenting the making of this fifth record with photos and video. He wants to return to the band, but for now, he needs to focus on his health.
