rj review february 2013 1A few bits of news that might interest you.

Red Jasper will be performing at the Cambridge Rock Festival, which will be held on August 2nd. They will play at the CRS stage. Further details will follow, so please keep an eye on our live dates page for this and other shows.

And, probably most interesting for our Norwegian fans: the Norwegian magazine Blackmoon features both an interview with the band and a review of the Anagranary album. You can see the scans of this in the Photo Gallery section.

DC: Not sure we're been featured in Norway before, Really nice to see (with some help on my part from Google translate).

New drummer...again

A while ago we announced Nick Harredance, of Shadowlands fame, to be the new drummer of Red Jasper. But we also mentioned it was not certain if he would keep the drumstool permamently warm. Although he is the drummer for the upcoming Great and Secret Show album, he will not remain a permanent Red Jasper member.

Auditions have been held to find a suitable replacement and in the end the new drummer for Red Jasper has been found....drumroll please for Mr. Florin Werner:
