NWOBHM legends ANGEL WITCH have reformed with yet another lineup — this time featuring a couple of very special surprise "guests".Joining mainman Kevin Heybourne in the band's latest incarnation are San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans Tom Hunting (drums — EXODUS), Lee Altus (guitar — HEATHEN, DIE KRUPPS), and Jon Torres (bass — WARNING SF, ULYSSES SIREN, LAAZ ROCKIT). Hunting and Torres are no strangers to the ANGEL WITCH camp, having previously played with in a late '80s/early '90s Bay Area-based version of the group that released a critically-acclaimed demo. According to an official press release, "The new lineup is not just another lineup for ANGEL WITCH — it is the last line-up. ANGEL WITCH are in the process of writing a new album together that will bring ANGEL WITCH back to its roots and back to the metal front. "ANGEL WITCH will be performing at Bang Your Head 2003 and will be on tour June-August with the NEW line-up. ANGEL WITCH will perform the old ANGEL WITCH classics during this tour. ANGEL WITCH will follow up with an additional tour after the new album is released." Commented Kevin Heybourne: "I think that fans of ANGEL WITCH will be just as excited as I am with the new lineup and won't be disappointed."
