Michael Kiske Joins Gamma Ray

Former Halloween vocalist Michael Kiske has disbanded Unisonic in favor of joining with his ex-bandmate Kai Hansen. Claims Kiske:

It is an honor to once again collaborate with Kai on his musical endeavors. I've guested on Gamma Ray albums in the past and now I'm proud to say that I'll be taking over all vocal duties for the foreseeable future.

My collaboration with Amanda Somerville was what inspired me to gt back into heavy metal music and I don't feel like a new band is what I need to do for my career. I apologize to any fans who were hoping to see Unisonic on tour but it simply isn't where my heart is. I look forward to seeing all of you fans on the road and yes, we will be covering old Helloween songs.

This marks the first time since 1994 that Kai Hanson hasn't been the lead vocalist of Gamma Ray when Ralf Scheepers departed the lineup. Micheal Kiske has been a solo artist since his departure form Helloween in 1993. New tour dates featuring the new Gamma Ray lineup will be posted once they become available.
