Hot Rod Circuit announced yesterday that they have gone their separate ways with drummer Mike Poorman, due to Poorman wanting to persue a full time career producing and recording bands in Boston. The band has already replaced Poorman and is already back in the studio working on a follow-up to 2002's Sorry About Tomorrow [review].

Poorman won't have downtime for very long - in February, he'll begin engineering and producing Tsunami Bomb's follow-up to 2002's The Ultimate Escape. Look for an exclusive studio diary coming your way here once recording starts.
