Divine Heresy Announces New Vocalist

After much controversy and speculation, DIVINE HERESY has announced a dynamic new vocalist, Travis Neal (The Bereaved, Pushed), who will join them on their upcoming tour of Mexico, which will be followed by a string of U.S. dates. The group recently re-recorded the album's title track, "Bleed The Fifth" with Neal on vocals. Head over now to the band's MySpace to check it out. A video for the track is also currently being edited together for an early Sept. airdate, so keep an eye out.

Dino Cazares (guitars) further comments: "We are beyond stoked to have Travis on board with us and we immediately knew that he was the perfect guy for the job. He definitely has the range and stage presence to make him one of the genre's most lethal vocalists out there and the new material we are writing is going to smoke our debut. It's more brutal, faster and pissed off, so you better start preparing yourselves now. Until then, we went ahead and re-recorded "Bleed The Fifth" with Travis and it's just a little taste of what this guy is truly capable of so enjoy and we will see you soon."

The latest Divine Heresy tour dates are as follows: More...

The Bereaved To Release New Album This Summer

THE BEREAVED vocalist Travis Neal has posted this message on the band's MySpace page:

"Hey all,

Sorry for the time away. I have been back in the US getting everything in order to get back out to Sweden in July for some PR for the new record 'Daylight Deception' due out this summer from VIC records. Everything has kinda been in limbo with the video still being edited and the record in the mixing process. Everything seems to be moving nicely but it just has it's time it has to take. As you are all dying to hear this new record so are we!

I just received a mix of 'Alter The image' today from Tobhias that he received from Dan Swanö. The mix sounds amazing!! We have a feeling you are all gonna love this record! Hopefully I will get a finished mix soon so I can post it up for all of your ears!

We have been starting to throw around ideas for some new material as well. I have been sent stuff and have been talking with the band two to three times a week so we are all on the same page. The new stuff sounds amazing as well. So far all the members in the band are putting together ideas and songs so with all of our own influence and background the music is sounding great!

Like I said I will be back in Sweden in July, We are planning some CD release parties as well as some shows in Orebro, Gothenburg and Stockholm. So hopefully we will be able to reach all of you there and see and hang with you all. I'm really looking forward to the trip back and hanging with all the incredible people I met when I was there again! We possibly have some things in the works for a US tour this year but nothing is written in stone yet so I will not speak of it until I have the solid plan! But it is definitely something to look forward to for THE BEREAVED and for our US fan base.

Well I guess that's all for now, keep checking for updates and news as it comes. Once again we love you all and can't thank you enough for your ongoing support!!! WE'LL SEE YA ALL VERY SOON!!!"
