Pentagram is currently auditioning new guitar players. As was previously announced, guitarist Victor Griffin is performing his farewell shows during the Oct/Nov European Relentless Tour. He'll be focusing on his solo career from this point on and the band and fans wish him all the best. The following press release was also issued:

"Victor will forever be an important part of the 'Ram Family.' Pentagram is now searching for the perfect player who can easily play the blazing, early blues-based, hard rock, proto-metal of the late Vincent McAllister as well as the doom metal mastery of the one and only Victor Griffin. Tone, chops, appearance, tour experience & availability (US and abroad so a passport is required), song writing skills, and sobriety are all important factors. The band will be writing/recording their follow up to the acclaimed Metal Blade release, Last Rites this coming December and January.

"Someone who is close to the Washington, DC area is preferred but exceptions will be made for the perfect player. For songs and video of the band, visit this location. Please submit a short bio, a photo, and audio or video of you playing. Pentagram song covers are preferred and the following songs are suggested:

"Wolf's Blood"
"All Your Sins"
"Treat Me Right"
"When the Screams Come"
"Forever My Queen"
"20 Buck Spin"

"Please send submissions to: PentagramAuditions@gmail.com. In other news, Pentagram is gearing up to tour Europe and the dates will commence with the band's first ever UK tour. In a celebration of Victor Griffin's time with the band, Pentagram will be playing the Decibel Magazine Hall of Fame album, Relentless, in its entirety. After the doom pioneers first-ever UK show in London in 2011, Bobby Leibling and the boys return for four shows with Gentlemans Pistols as support, kicking off in Bristol at The Fleece."
