REVEREND has announced the addition of bassist Mike Falletta to the group's ranks. Falletta joins the band as the replacement for Brendon Kyle, who has enlisted in the United States Air Force and will be leaving to bootcamp this month.Commented guitarist Davey Lee: "Being that we knew Brendon would be leaving soon, we set out to find the best possible match that would do our music justice. We happened to see him perform at a club, and when we pursued his talents he was just as excited to join with us as we were to have him in the band." "Mike moved to Texas from New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina devastated his world where he lost everything and had no choice but to start a new life somewhere else. "Mike is a very fast learner and is extremely talented he fits right in" Look for REVEREND on tour this summer.
