Wings Denied has issued the following statement about bringing on a session vocalist for upcoming tour dates:
"Hey guys, so we have an announcement to make. As many of you know, our singer Luka is not a U.S. citizen, and unfortunately this time around, we have run into a delay with his visa status, meaning that he will not be able to participate in the Progressive Winter 2015 tour with Cryptodira. This is not permanent, and we are working on getting him back here as soon as possible.
"However, fear not, as our good friend JCK Klemm, singer of Maid Myriad, will be filling in for Luka on this tour. His band is awesome, he's a pretty sweet dude, and here's a video of him absolutely killing Generation Y. Tour starts in 9 days, see you there!" More...

"After 17 states on the East Coast and 30 days of mayhem, our summer tour has officially ended. Thank you to everyone who came out, wore a shirt, bought some merch, and helped us out on the way in any way possible.
"We received such an overwhelming amount of positivity and support on this tour. We'd like to thank The Circle Pit, The Djent-lemen's Club, It Djents, DjentWorldwideTV, and got-djent.com for sponsoring the tour as well as the boys in A Minor Error for touring with us. We had such an amazing time!

You can also stream the band's previous release "Awake" over at this location.
"Axis Of The Underground Volume 2 will treat your eardrums to the thrashiest of metal, heinous black metal, putrid death metal, empowering traditional metal, methodical doom metal, boundary pushing progressive metal, the grooviest of groove metal, avant-garde madness, and bouncy folk metal among many other genres and incarnations of heavy sounds.
"We’ve loaded our heavy metal shotgun and are discharging the most comprehensive of compilations to satisfy even the pickiest of nay-sayers and nitpickers. Axis Of The Underground is our way to give back to the genre that has brought all of us years and years of elation and enjoyment. So sit back, crack a cold one, or roll a herbal cigarette and hit play on the bandcamp player below, and be prepared to be whisked away to a heavy metal nirvana. "
