Latest Iscariot News
Below is our complete Iscariot news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Iscariot has been rejoined by original singer, Derrick Harding. Here's a statement from the band:
"As many of you suspected, Derrick Harding is once again the frontman for Iscariot. Derrick is our original singer, and the perfect, and only, fit for the band. So, for those of your keeping count, the 4 original members are still in the band. Ian has since moved on, but Brad as been a huge asset from the first day he joined. I think it's safe to say that things have worked out for the best for all involved parties. Derrick stepping away from the band for a while allowed everybody to take a step back and reevaluate their situation, and it was for the better. Brandon is doing well with Veil of Maya, so that seems to have worked out for the best for him as well.
"We've just uploaded 3 new songs. We’d like to thank the Nook Studio for all their efforts to make this sound awesome. We HIGHLY recommend them, and I think you'll agree that their production is awesome. And yes, that is Mook on backing vocals in Defilement of the Throne. If you like these songs, we encourage you to share them with your friends. Put them up on your page, make a bulletin, whatever. If you like it, share it."
Iscariot is in search of new vocalist following the sudden departure of their last singer. The group explains: "Well, it appears that our vocalist has left us to join another band. We were informed by him via a Myspace message last Friday. That's the only word we received about the whole situation from him. We're not mad at all, but we're definitely disappointed with the whole situation."
Anyone interesting in trying out for the position can find extensive requirements and details here.
Iscariot has dropped off the remainder of their tour with At All Cost and One Dead Three Wounded. The band comments: "After our show in Mankato, Minnesota our van had a problem and we discovered that our van is in short having major engine problems and we need a new engine. Currently we don't have the money to afford a new engine."
Additionally, Iscariot has also cancelled their "Back To School" tour, slated to run from August 17th through October 20th. The band will instead play several sets of weekend shows, the details of which are being worked out. The group adds, "We're extremely sorry to anyone who was planning on coming out and seeing us we really wish we could play and would be there if we could!"
