Knoxville, Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL has parted ways with drummer Kevin Lane and has reportedly replaced him with Ben Harclerode of the Glendale, Arizona band KNIGHTS OF THE ABYSS. Lane is said to have returned home to Kingsport, Tennessee and is planning to go back to school.
WHITECHAPEL has selected Rocketown in Nashville, Tennessee as the location for the video shoot for the track "Breeding Violence", taken from the band's latest release, "A New Era of Corruption". The clip will be filmed on Saturday, January 8 with director Scott Hansen, who has previously worked on videos for ILL NIÑO, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, WILLIE NELSON, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and A DAY TO REMEMBER, among others. WHITECHAPEL will play a full set for its fans and will be joined by THE TONY DANZA TAP DANCE EXTRAVAGANZA.
Commented WHITECHAPEL guitarist and founding member Alex Wade: "Nashville has always been a second hometown for us and with the success of the show there on 'The Corruptour', naturally we'd love to shoot our music video for our awesome Nashville fans. Our good friends in THE TONY DANZA TAP DANCE EXTRAVAGANZA will be opening the show so come out and get a shot of being in our video; it's gonna be a fun night!"
Come out to join WHITECHAPEL and be a part of the band's new music video; the $10 all-ages show starts at 7 p.m.
WHITECHAPEL will embark on its first-ever European headlining tour in April 2011 with support from THE ACACIA STRAIN and IMPENDING DOOM.
