Seregon Announces Comeback

After years of sporadic activity, British thrash metal band Seregon, widely regarded in their time as the best British band not to be signed, has announced their return. The band has departed with bass player Lee Rugman and brought back original bassist Ben Allen and will be working on new material for release next year. A statement on their official website reads as follows:

"Firstly, with a heavy heart we bring you the news that bassist Lee Rugman has left the Seregon fold; he hasn't gone far and can be found kicking ass and taking names weekly as part of the AC/DC Tribute Juggernaut that is HELLS BELLS! Lee and Seregon find themselves with 15+ shows in the bank that took them around the UK and into mainland Europe for Festival Appearances also. We would like to take a moment to thank Lee for all he has contributed to the Seregon family on and off the stage, and consider him a friend and all round cool guy.

"So, where do we go now I hear you say? Well, best watch the video below!
