New Jersey progressive metallers SUSPYRE have announced their lineup for their September 10, 2009 appearance at the ProgPower USA festival.

SUSPYRE, who parted ways with co-founder/guitarist Rich Skibinsky in January, will be joined by Sam Bhoot on bass guitar, and current band member Andrew Distabile will be performing on guitar. The lineup is rounded out by Clay Barton (vocals), Gabe Marshall (drums), Gregg Rossetti (guitars/saxophone), and April Sese (keyboards).

"Since my main instrument is guitar, it seemed like the natural thing to do to now play guitar for SUSPYRE, and find a replacement bassist. I learned bass just to join SUSPYRE in 2006," says Andrew Distabile.

SUSPYRE will also perform on Sunday, July 26 during the Art of Prog VIII series at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia, and Friday, August 21 at Bar East in New York City.

SUSPYRE released its third album, "When Time Fades…", on September 30, 2008 through Sensory Records. The band performed at the ProgPower Europe festival in October 2008. They are now booking for 2010 festivals and tours.
