Vocalist Jason Hohenstein has announced his departure from the South Carolina-based extreme metal band LECHEROUS NOCTURNE. He says in a statement, "Many factors have played into this [decision], none of which more important than my family/home- life/job. The last tour I wasn't feeling it anymore and I owe it to LECHEROUS and every fan of LECHEROUS to not 'fake it.' 12-plus years of good times, great fans/friends, and what I still perceive to be great music.
"I will still continue to support LECHEROUS and I know that they still have many years of great things ahead of them.
"Thanks to everyone over the years who have shown tremendous support, and my family and friends for everything they have done.
"I will still continue to be musically active... just not in the 'metal scene."
LECHEROUS NOCTURNE is currently seeking a new vocalist. Interested parties should contact Kreishloff at [email protected],
"Just War Theory", the latest video from LECHEROUS NOCTURNE, can be viewed below. The song comes off LECHEROUS NOCTURNE's second album, "The Age of Miracles Has Passed", which was released in October 2008 via Unique Leader Records.
Once again recorded at SoundLab Studio in Columbia, South Carolina, "The Age of Miracles Has Passed" is said to be "a refined yet diversified progression from 2006's 'Adoration of the Blade'."
