Withersoul Parts Ways With Vocalist Laura Jones

Virginia doom metal band Withersoul has issued the following update regarding the delay of their album:

"We're aware that some of you are probably becoming irritated by the fact that our full length was supposed to be out 6 months ago, but we've run into a few roadblocks to say the least. Yet another vocal personnel change has happened. Laura and Withersoul have parted ways and we have recruited Lyssa (formerly of Azure Allele) in her place. To hear her previous work, head over here."

"Despite the setbacks, the album is still close to being completed. Just have to rework some lyrics and tighten up the little stuff. Give us a few months and we'll see you at the shows again."

This is the first time a fest like this has happened in RVA to my knowledge. One of our biggest goals with this beast of a fest is to keep it DIY. We want to do it yearly and I'm hoping you can all help it grow. If you come and show your support for your friends, the music, the bands, winter, whatever... I'm considering everyone involved in the first year to be the OG's of the fest!"
