DAVID WAYNE's Brother To Join Newly Reformed REVEREND?

The surviving members of DAVID WAYNE'S METAL CHURCH, the band formed by late METAL CHURCH frontman David Wayne, are in talks with Wayne's brother about him possibly taking over the vocalist slot in the newly reformed REVEREND.

Commented REVEREND guitarist Davey Lee: "[Wayne's brother] sounds exactly like David on the phone and if you were to see him you would think that David never left they have a striking resemblance. We have sent out new songs for him to check out we should be getting them back shortly you can't imagine how excited we are. The minute we know we will be sending out a press release with details."

Wayne's bandmates had previously stated about Dave's passing, "When a bandmate dies, the remaining members have to make a decision; continue on with the same beliefs, values, and direction, or stop playing together and pursue other projects. In our case, David left us specific instructions. After a period of mourning and in David Wayne's honor, we will follow through with the 'Godfather of Metal''s wishes.

"We are working on our older material plus the new collaborated songs with lyrics by David Wayne and are in search of a lead vocalist. We are not seeking a replacement for David Wayne, but a vocalist who wants metal to be metal and carry on the tradition and give justice to the lyrics and music of REVEREND!"

REVEREND 2005 is:

Davey Lee - Guitar
Nacho Vara - Guitar
Jesse Vara - Drums
Brendon Kyle - Bass

As previously reported, Wayne died on May 10, 2005 due to complications from injuries he sustained in a head-on automobile accident several months earlier. He was 47 years old.
