GORGOROTH Parts Ways With Singer

Norwegian black metallers GORGOROTH have issued the following update:

"Out of respect for and loyalty to GORGOROTH's audience and collaborators, Infernus [guitar] has kicked Pest [vocals] out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil.

"Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of TAAKE will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7th.

"As for the next GORGOROTH studio album, 'Instinctus Bestalis', vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band TRIUMFALL (Forces of Satan Records)."

GORGOROTH's upcoming tour in September has been extended to also include dates in Central America.

On the Brazil leg of the tour — the Setembro Negro Festival 2012GORGOROTH will be joined by KEEP OF KALESSIN. Two of these concerts will also see GORGOROTH co-headlining with AUTOPSY. After this, the tour will continue through Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala, with local support.
