Hawk Nelson's Aaron Tosti leaves, replaced by Justin Benner

CANADIAN pop punk band Hawk Nelson have undergone another personnel change. Drummer Aaron Tosti has exited the band, to be replaced by Justin Benner. Said bassist Daniel Biro, "Justin was out on the baseball tour with us last year, playing drums for The Send. He is quite the drummer, and sometimes I wonder if he was taught from Carter B himself, the drummer of the Dave Matthews Band. It saddens me to see Aaron move on. He is a great friend and that is never gonna change. We wish him the best with everything and know we'll probably see some rocking records produced by A Tosti in the future." CR
