VILE Split With Singer, Announce Temporary Replacement

Californian brutal death metallers VILE have officially parted ways with singer Juan Urteaga. "[Juan] has officially quit the band," reads a message on the band's official web site. "We have known for some time that this was due to occur soon. The Violating Europe tour signified the end of his career with VILE. As many of you know Juan owns and operates Trident Studios. He is very busy with recording and also with his family obligations. He doesn't believe that he will be able to fulfill our touring requirements so he has stepped down to make way for someone who can fulfill all the tasks. In the meantime we will be joined by James Lee of ORIGIN to do our upcoming tours. One will be a West Coast mini tour this summer and then a full U.S. tour at the end of this year or beginning of 2004. Best of luck to our longtime friend Juan Urteaga in any and all of his future endeavors."
