WESTFIELD MASSACRE Parts Ways With Singer TOMMY VEXT, Recruits Ex-QUIET RIOT Frontman SEANN NICOLS

WESTFIELD MASSACRE has parted ways with singer Tommy Vext (ex-DIVINE HERESY, SNOT) and has replaced him with Seann Nicols (pictured; a.k.a. Sheldon Tarsha; Bobby Blotzer's RATT, formerly of ADLER'S APPETITE and QUIET RIOT).

The new lineup of WESTFIELD MASSACRE will embark on a U.S. headlining tour, the "North American Meltdown", in early July.

WESTFIELD MASSACRE features lead guitarist Ira Black (METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN), guitarist Stephen Brewer, bassist Erik Tisinger (OTEP, THROWN INTO EXILE) and Brazilian drummer Dio Britto.

WESTFIELD MASSACRE stated: "We are committed to fulfilling all obligations and promises we've made to our fans. We have secured the legal right to perform and do business as WESTFIELD MASSACRE. Unfortunately, it's not always easy for our fans to understand the internal workings of a band. We appreciate all of our fans support as we move forward and are anxious to deliver our record and get back on the road."

WESTFIELD MASSACRE's self-titled debut album was released in April 2016 via Urban Yeti Records. The CD was recorded at Echelon Studios with producer Joseph McQueen.
