OMEN Taps ASKA Singer For European Shows

Long-running metallers OMEN have been forced to abandon their plans of utilizing vocalist Matt Storey for their upcoming European dates due to "passport issues" and have recruited ASKA singer George Call to fill in for the shows.

OMEN recently announced that they will perform all of their previously announced European dates including the festivals Keep It True in Germany and Up the Hammers in Greece following singer Kevin Goocher's recent hip surgery. In addition to founding guitarist/songwriter Kenny Powell, the band's new lineup will include original drummer Steve Wittig and bassist Scott Clute.

Confirmed dates are as follows:

April 04 - Lauda-Knigshofen, Germany @ Keep it True Festival
April 07 - Aalst, Belgium @ Negasonic
April 10 - Como, Italy @ Motorock AS
April 11 - Athens, Greece @ Up the Hammers Festival

In addition to rehearsing for the upcoming tour, OMEN's new lineup is currently working on material for a new album. More details will be announced shortly.
