LANDMINE MARATHON Parts Ways With Singer, Announces Replacement
Arizona grind masters LANDMINE MARATHON have parted ways with vocalist Grace Perry and have replaced her with Krysta Martinez (of Portland's TRANSIENT).
Commented the band: "This summer, Grace decided to leave the band to pursue non-musical endeavors. We are grateful for all of her contributions to LANDMINE MARATHON and wish her nothing but future successes."
Added Martinez: "I'm stoked to be creating music with LANDMINE MARATHON and look forward to hitting the road with them in coming months. Grace is an amazing vocalist, and filling her shoes is a great challenge. Things have been incredibly enjoyable so far and the best is surely yet to come."
A new version of the LANDMINE MARATHON song "Dead Horses", featuring vocals by Krysta Martinez, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
LANDMINE MARATHON's fourth album, "Gallows", was released in September 2011 via Prosthetic Records. The CD was recorded by LANDMINE MARATHON guitarist Ryan Butler at Arcane Digital Recording Studio (EXHUMED, NIGHTRAGE, MISERY INDEX, PHOBIA) and mastered by Dave Shirk at Sonorous Mastering. The album features the debut of the band's new drummer, Andy York.
The "Gallows" cover art was created by U.K. artist Rob "Mid " Middleton, who has previously worked with NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR and DEVIATED INSTINCT (in which Middleton plays guitar), among others.
