vicious-rumors-electric-punishment-coverCalifornia heavy metallers Vicious Rumors will be heading out on their European tour this weekend. With sadness, the band has announced that their vocalist, Brian Allen, will not be joining the band on tour during the month of May due to sudden family matters.

Brian will return to the band for the summer European tour in July/August 2013 and The Metal Masters Tour featuring Vicious Rumors, Leatherwolf and Seven Witches from September 18th to October 25th. Former Vicious Rumors vocalist and Helstar frontman James Rivera will be filling in for Brian Allen from May 3rd through June 1st.

Guitarist Geoff Thorpe commented: “James is part of the VR family and were so proud to have him join us at this hard time. Don’t miss this special line up of VR on the Electric Punishment Tour all over Europe. We want to thank all our partners, agents, promoters and fans in advance. The only bad tour is the one you don’t do!! See you at the shows for night after night of unforgettable Heavy Metal.”
