Exit Strategy Announces Vocalist's Departure

Calgary grindcore act Exit Strategy recently announced their current vocalist, Shane Hawco, will give his final performance with the band will take place Dec. 12 at The Velvet Underground in Edmonton, AB. This show also marks the second of two official release performances in support of the band’s self-produced DVD companion to “The United State of Amnesia,” their debut album released last February.

“Due to Shane's increasing work obligations/schedule, our mighty front man & very good friend has elected to step down from his role in ES, which we fully understand and support,” Exit Strategy bassist Greg Musgrave said in a written statement on Alberta Metal. “Shane's ideology has really been the heart of Exit Strategy and will always be the voice that brought this band on to the scene and really stood for what the band is all about. He will be missed by his band members & ES fans alike, but we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Bison B.C. guitarist Dan And handed out some mad props to the independent band in a Dec. 10 interview with Metal Sucks. “That was a band that just absolutely floored me. I couldn’t believe it. It was tech/grind but not over the top, not the kind of tech where you don’t know what’s going on,” he told the webzine.

So, if you miss out on Hawco’s final performance, there will technically be one final last appearance by Hawco, tentatively scheduled for February or March 2009. “We will be doing a passing of the guard show so to speak when we formally introduce our new vocalist and have both Shane and our new vocalist do a show together showcasing the first era of the band as, well as the future of ES,” Musgrave concluded. The location for this show is still to be determined.
