FIVE.BOLT.MAIN Announce New Lineup For Tour

FIVE.BOLT.MAIN, the new band featuring former FLAW singer Chris Volz, has announced a new lineup effective immediately. Joining the group for their upcoming tour dates are three members from the popular New York City-based hard rock band ALSTON: Kobie Jackson (guitar), Alex Cando (bass), and Ron Paige (guitar). Founding FIVE.BOLT.MAIN members Volz and Ivan Arnold (drums) remain with the band.

Jackson was the former bass player of heavy metal outfit PRIMER 55, and later went on to form ALSTON, dazzling audiences with their infectious live show. Jackson sings and plays guitar with ALSTON, joined by Cando on bass (who also performed with DARWIN'S WAITING ROOM) and Paige on guitar. ALSTON will continue to open for FIVE.BOLT.MAIN and DRY KILL LOGIC throughout their October tour. Departing FIVE.BOLT.MAIN for the remainder of the tour are Jason Chandler, Ben Arnold, and Aaron Weleken. The three are leaving due to "musical differences and unforeseen rigors of the road."

FIVE.BOLT.MAIN recently released "Venting", their hard-hitting debut on Rock Ridge Music. The first single from "Venting", the powerful "Pathetic", has already made its debut on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball". It is also being broadcast nationwide with steady spins at Active Rock radio.
