Jim Malone, the vocalist and guitarist for the Virginia death metal act, Arsis, has announced that we wouldn’t be on the tour with Firewind and White Wizzard. However the band will still play with a substitute. Malone on the subject stated:
“Due to professional and personal commitments I am unable to tour with Arsis at this time. For the upcoming tour with Firewind, rather than drop off the tour entirely, we’ve decided to hire live musicians, some of whom have long been associated with my band. I have given Nick and Noah my blessing and am certain the lineup will be great. My sincerest apologies to anyone who is annoyed or disappointed by my absence. Please go and support Arsis and check out some of our new songs, which they will be playing every night!”
Arsis’s latest album, “Starve For The Devil,” was released in February 2010 through Nuclear Blast.
