Chicago metallers DIRGE WITHIN have recruited Travis Neal (DIVINE HERESY) as their new lead singer following the recent departure of Jeremy "Jerms" Genske.
Commented the band: "[We have] wasted no time and [have] begun writing new material as well as planning some new shows in February. We have also put together a raw 100% live rehearsal video of us jamming on some material off of both records so all of our amazing fans can get a nice taste of what's to come (see clip below).
"We are excited for all to join us in this new chapter. We will have some more cool stuff surfacing online very soon so keep on the lookout!!"
DIRGE WITHIN's sophomore album, "There Will Be Blood", was released on April 10 via Rocket Science Ventures/THC: Music. The CD was recorded at Mercenary Studios in Zion, Illinois with engineer Scott Creekmore and producer Ari Mihalopoulos and was mixed at Inner Light Studios with Ari and DIRGE WITHIN guitarist Shaun Glass.
