Mexican band Split Heaven has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new vocalist:
"We’re delighted to announce Jason Conde-Houston as our new singer and front man!! As soon as Jason told us he was interested on being part of Split Heaven, we knew it was him.
"Of course, we have heard him with his band Skelator before, but when he sent the audition and we listened what he did with 'Danger Zone,' we immediately stopped hearing other vocalists.
"We want to thank all singers who sent their demos, we got auditions from México, Spain and U.S.A and now, finally, we decided to have Jason as a part of the Split Heaven dynasty."
Jason says: “It is an honor to announce that I am joining Split Heaven as their new singer. I have been a fan since 2010 when I heard their first album 'Psycho Samurai.' This does not mean the end of Skelator, I think this will make me a better musician and give both bands more connections around the globe.” More...
