Former TYPE O NEGATIVE Drummer To Join SEVEN WITCHES For Special East Coast Shows

Guitarist Jack Frost (SAVATAGE, BELLADONNA, SEVEN WITCHES) has released the following statement:

"Just wanted to let you know that SEVEN WITCHES will be doing two special shows this month (April.) I say special because of the KILLER lineup that the band boasts this time around. First off, we have none other than Alan Tecchio (HADES, NON-FICTION) back on vocals for these dates. Those of you that have seen Alan sing with us know that this will be insane 'cause he goes for it at every gig. On drums, we have Jonny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DANZIG, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH) and on bass Ronnie Parks (FARCRY).

"Does it get any better than a lineup like this?! I think not!

"These shows will be an insane tribute and celebration to the metal animal inside all of us, as SEVEN WITCHES takes the stage and annihilates everything in sight! Come out and support metal in its purest form at these two upcoming gigs."

The dates are as follows:

April 20 - Dingbatz - Clifton, NJ
April 21 - Jimmy's Place - Allentown, PA

Vocalist James Rivera (HELSTAR, VICIOUS RUMORS, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM) announced his departure from SEVEN WITCHES in September.

Rivera sang on SEVEN WITCHES' "Passage To The Other Side" (2003), "Year Of The Witch" (2004) and "Call Upon The Wicked" (2011) albums.

"Call Upon The Wicked" was released on June 3, 2011 via Massacre Records. The CD features material that ranges in sound from classic JUDAS PRIEST to a touch of RAINBOW. There's even an epic song featuring female vocals, a new step in the band's chapter. The record is a bit of a concept, talking about how women have been the decline of men since the beginning of time.
