Scottish death metal band Cerebral Bore have apparently lost their frontwoman Simone “Som” Pluijmers.  According to the band, she walked out on them less than 24 hours before their US tour.

To read the statement form the band click here (also included are tour dates).

Luckily, Cerebral Bore was able to tap friend Shawn Whitaker to handle the vocal responsibilities so they did not have to cancel any dates.  The band’s latest release was 2011’s Maniacal Miscreation under Earache records.


Statement from Cerebral Bore on loss of frontwoman:

“Som walked out on us less than 24 hours before the U.S. tour, and we were forced to either cancel or go ahead with it as an instrumental, if need be. We didn’t want to let our U.S. fans down, so we went ahead with our buddy Shawn Whitaker on vocals for the tour. Show us your support and make Shawn feel at home; he saved us from a disaster.”
