EXODUS drummer Tom Hunting has pulled out of the planned ANGEL WITCH reunion project in order to focus all his time on upcoming touring and recording commitments with his main band. In his place, ANGEL WITCH mainman Kevin Heybourne, bassist Jon Torres (WARNING SF, ULYSSES SIREN, LAAZ ROCKIT) and Lee Altus (HEATHEN, DIE KRUPPS) have recruited former HEATHEN and current DECONSTRUCT drummer Darren Minter.
The revamped ANGEL WITCH are in the process of writing a new album together that will "bring [the group] back to its roots and back to the metal front," according to an official press release. ANGEL WITCH will play a set of classics at a number of European dates during June/July, and will embark on a full-length tour once the new album is released. "I think that fans of ANGEL WITCH will be just as excited as I am with the new line-up and won't be disappointed," Heybourne stated.
ANGEL WITCH have been confirmed for this year's installment of Bang Your Head festival, scheduled to take place Jun. 27-28 in Balingen, Germany. Other groups set to appear at the event include TWISTED SISTER, DIO, THIN LIZZY, HAMMERFALL, U.D.O., SODOM and OVERKILL.
