New Orleans sludge pioneers Eyehategod have officially recruited a new full-time drummer. Near the end of August, the band and the metal community lost drummer Joey LaCaze. As a founding member of Eyehategod, his influence can never truly be replaced, but drummer Aaron Hill has been elected to keep the band in tact.

A large amount of musicians from bands such as Pantera, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall and Nonpoint look the time to play tribute to LaCaze after learning of his passing. About a week after LaCaze’s demise, the official cause of death was revealed to be respiratory failure. It was also noted that the drummer suffered from long term asthma.

Having had time to mourn the loss of LaCaze, Eyehategod have decided to move forward. The NOLA act performed at Phil Anselmo‘s Housecore Horror Film Fest last weekend with Melvins percussionist Dale Crover, but Aaron Hill of Missing Mountains / Mountain of Wizard has been announced as Eyehategod’s newest member.

Aaron Hill makes his Eyehategod debut tonight, which just happens to be Halloween, at the House of Shock in Jefferson, La. For a full list of Eyehategod’s remaining 2013 shows, check out the dates below.
