DIVINE HERESY Fires Singer, Seeks Replacement

According to HeadbangersBlog.com, singer Tommy Cummings has been fired from DIVINE HERESY. The move came after Cummings flew into a rage during a show on April 26 in Poughkeepsie, New York when the other players wouldnt let him end the set early.

"He gave us 10 different reasons why we should stop 'My microphone doesn't work, I got diarrhea, the monitors are fked up' whatever he could think of," DIVINE HERESY guitarist Dino Cazares told HeadbangersBlog.com. "And we decided thats not fair to the fans. We wanted to give them a full show."

After the onstage confrontation, DIVINE HERESY canceled its April 27 show at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival and returned to California. Currently, the band has auditions scheduled with four other singers and will definitely be onboard when their tour with ARCH ENEMY and FIREWIND launches on May 9 in Philadelphia.
