KAMELOT drummer Casey Grillo is selling a “one-of-a-kind” Pearl Welder Tour Select drum kit via eBay. He says: “This drum kit was custom made for me to use on KAMELOT‘s 2012 U.S. tour while opening up for NIGHTWISH. I would love to hang on to it but I have so many kits at this time and room is running out. The drums are all Pearl with a metal wrap that’s about a quarter of an inch away from the shell. The lugs are custom free floating lugs made by Wac’d drums. I am only selling the shell pack. So you will not get any cymbals, stands, seat, pedals, or snare drum. The drums come as listed.”
“I will be happy to sign any or all the drums and a portion of the proceeds will go to ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation).”
KAMELOT‘s new album, “Silverthorn”, sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 79 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “Poetry For The Poisoned”, opened with around 6,100 units in September 2010 to enter the chart at No. 74.
“Silverthorn” was released on October 30 in North America, October 26 in Germany and October 29 in the rest of Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. The CD marks the band’s first release with Tommy Karevik, the Swedish vocalist who previously fronted SEVENTH WONDER (a group that he is still a member of).
