RAGING SPEEDHORN Part Ways With Singer, Announce Temporary Replacement

RAGING SPEEDHORN have parted ways with vocalist Frank Regan on the eve of their U.K. tour. An official statement from the band reads as follows:

"With RAGING SPEEDHORN still being one of Britain's hardest working bands, Frank no longer feels able to commit fully to the rigorous schedule, and has taken the difficult decision to leave the band. John, Darren, Gareth, Gordon and Jay fully respect and back Frank’s decision to deal with private issues and spend more time with his wife and child."

RAGING SPEEDHORN have enlisted a temporary replacement in the shape of former HARD TO SWALLOW/IRON MONKEY/HELVIS vocalist Bloody Kev. The group's new album, entitled "How The Great Have Fallen", is scheduled for release on May 23 via SPV Records. The CD, the group's first with ex-DEFENESTRATION axeman Jaye Thompson, was recorded at London's 2KHZ Studios (THE DARKNESS, THE WILDHEARTS) with producer Joe Barresi (LIMP BIZKIT, BUCKCHERRY, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MONSTER MAGNET, KYUSS).
