DIO Guitarist Joins HYDROGYN

DIO guitarist Craig Goldy has joined West Virginia melodic hard rockers HYDROGYN.

Comments Goldy: "While Ronnie is touring and recording with HEAVEN AND HELL, I am proud to announce my journey with HYDROGYN. I am looking forward to writing, recording and touring with them during the all too often well-known 'hiatus' of the band DIO.

Craig continues: "It's quickly become much more than a 'one-off' situation with HYDROGYN. During the negotiation process involved in our mutual desire to work together, we forged a strong bond that I believe will continue well into the future in all aspects of an endevour such as this one has become.

"Upon Ronnie's return I will be anxiously awaiting the writing, recording and touring that will follow and highly anticipating an awesome CD release alongside my family Ronnie, Rudy, Simon and Scott. Until then I will be operating at my fullest potential with HYDROGYN, with whom I've also been honored to form a long-term friendship with and build an alliance with DA Records and my program Destiny Bridge. It is my sincere hope and desire to continue in this capacity long into the future."

HYDROGYN founding guitarist Jeff Westlake states: "Guitarist Jeff Boggs's departure is due to family commitments and we totally appreciate and understand it. Craig coming into the band is awesome and I look forward to what is ahead both professionally and personally with Craig. I have had time to get to know him and we click very well. This next CD should be off the hook."

The band is currently in writing sessions on both the East and West Coast for HYDROGYN's upcoming third studio album, the follow-up to "Bombshell".

HYDROGYN will support the release of their new studio CD with major touring worldwide.
