Divine Heresy Announces New Vocalist, Travis Neal

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."

I listened to the title track with new vocals and I couldn't even tell the difference, honestly. So I think that's a good thing. I wanted to compare the other songs on their MySpace player and it seems they've uploaded instrumental version of all of them!

After the rumours that Dino and Tommy had that little confrontation, does anyone else find it funny that the new guy used to be in a band called Pushed?

Now playing: R.E.M.- Orange Crush

I think the they sound similar on the song but the old guy sounds meaner, and i sure as hell know he's got a better clean singing voice, the old guy had some pipes.

Did you know that Dino entered and eating contest against a blue whale. the Blue whale, after bittelry loosing, filed a no contest stating that : ' how do you expect me tp win this, I had no chance at all, he's too fat...' The board reviewed the contest and had to agree with the Blue Whale : ' we looked at the tapes and looked at Dino's measurements and we saw that there was truly a big disadvantage for the blue whale. Friends of the blue whale also stated that : ' the only thing bigger than Dino is Dino's ego itself. Dino's ego is so big that when you are in the same state as he is, the air is sucked out and it's hard to breath. More on this story at 11pm. This was Red news, good day !!!

We know, it will be just a matter of time before Dino boots out the new vocalist...Dino is extremely talented, but a complete A$$ as a human being. I just love his fukkin' riffs...too bad.

So let me guess, now Divine Heresy is going to attempt to re-release their album with this new guy. Therefore fans will need to buy the album, yet again...but hey...haha...I didn't pay for it in the first place..
If this doesn't happen, I will be shocked.

Must just be a coincidence with dino and vocalists/ band members coz it never seems to be his fault. What a D***HEAD. Dino will find eventually that no one will want to play with him anymore then the truth will be obvious. And re releasing Bleed the fifth with the new vocalist just show's the arrogance of the idiot.

It is because he thinks he should be the singer. Like what someone said about the SOAD guitarist yesterday.
