Pittsburgh melodic metal band ICARUS WITCH has announced a change in their lead vocalist. In a statement from the band's official site they explained the situation:
"We are excited to announce yet another massive shift in our ranks as we welcome new vocalist Christopher Shaner to the ICARUS WITCH circle and part ways amicably with original vocalist, Matthew Bizilia. Matthew's contributions to the band have been immeasurable over the past six years. While this was a serious decision for both parties, professional differences of opinion led to the change. Bizilia is a phenomenal talent who will always be a part of the Witch family as we wish him much success on his future ventures."
Incoming vocalist and Erie, Pennsylvania native Shaner is a long time friend and collaborator of guitarist Quinn Lukas. Before Quinn moved to Pittsburgh to join ICARUS WITCH in 2006, he had worked on various musical projects with the singer. Much like the recent acquisition of second guitarist Ed Skero, the choice to add Christopher to the band was based on a combination of what he brings to the lineup personally, musically and professionally. His powerful vocal range, sense of harmony and intense work ethic are a perfect fit for the next phase of this band. Writing for the follow-up to Draw Down The Moon has already commenced with the new recruits and it promises to be the band's most diverse, melodic and epic release ever. More...

Lizzy Borden has issued the following recap of the Kobetasonik festival:
"Wednesday morning I got a call asking if we wanted to play the Kobetasonik festival in Bilbao Spain On Saturday. I wasn’t sure that we could do the show because my passport just expired the day before. I spent the whole day at the federal building on Thursday not knowing if they would renew my passport or not, they just kept saying we will do our best. I finally got it in my hands at 5:00 that night; we flew out for Spain the next morning. We arrived at the festival at around 4:00 in the afternoon on Saturday scheduled to play at 8:15 that night, only one problem, the airline lost all of our luggage. We finally tracked it down and they said they were flying it in and it would all be there in time for the show. While we franticly waited for our luggage we watched Buckcherry, papa roach, and Anthrax, all really great shows! More...

Los Angeles metal band Lizzy Borden has just announced the death of former member, Corey James. Here are the details:
"Our Brother and former guitarist Corey James (Daum) passed away Saturday morning in Nashville, Tennessee from an auto accident. Corey was a Lizzy Borden guitarist from 1989 to 1995; he appeared in 2 Lizzy Borden video’s ‘We got the power’ and ‘Love is a crime’ as well as on the Master of Disguise tour; we were looking for a second guitarist to play along side Alex Nelson and We had a cattle call of guitarist come down to audition. As soon as Corey walked in the room I had high hopes for him. He was a tall, bone skinny kid with long blonde hair and a giant Colgate smile. He started playing and singing away with no fear and gave it all he had, I liked him immediately and so did everyone else. After he was done I told him that we would get back to him after we finished the day, but in my mind I already knew that he was the guy. I called him later that night and asked him if he wanted to see the world and live in a tour bus for a couple of years, he was ecstatic and I could tell even over the phone that that smile would not leave his face while he slept that night… More...
The following lineup change has been announced for Germany's Keep It True Festival
"Unfortunally we have to bring you some sad news for KEEP IT TRUE 12. HITTMAN had to cancel their show in April. The cause for that is an unexpected family tragedy at one of the band members. The band had talks to play with a replacement, but did not do it because it wouldn’t have been HITTMAN. We can totally understand this and want to express all our best wishes to the band and the musician. The door for a future show will always be open at KIT.
But we haven’t been lazy and so we can already announce the first class replacement band. Dutch Metal legend PICTURE will fill the spot of HITTMAN this April and all who saw the amazing show last year at Headbangers Open Air will know, that you can expect a high energy show filled with all the hits of this great band."
Other confirmed bands for the festival include Armored Saint, Lizzy Borden, and Abattoir.
