Dauntless Recruits Former Vocalist

Vocalist Ari Nieminen of Finnish act Dauntless has checked in with the following announcement about returning to the band:

"Hey! I'm back! Okay, maybe I have to explain this a little bit... Well, here it goes. When I decided to leave Dauntless I thought it was the best decision at the moment. But when I had time to think it over, I felt like 'Oh fuck, this was totally wrong thing to do.' I told guys about it and they asked me to come back, because there were some disagreements with Micko. The break I had was a best thing for me and thus I realized that this is what I want and these are the guys I wanna rock with - forever!

"Sometimes you just have to take some time off to really know what you really want. So the rest is history... but for all you fans out there, I'm so fucking proud and excited about this and I really, really hope that this will be pleasant thing for you and all the people who still keep up hanging with us. Cheers! Peace and love fuckers! Keep it real!"
