I Lock Up — supergruppo grindcore con Anton Reisenegger (Pentagram, Criminal), Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Brujeria, Venomous Concept) e Nick Barker (Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir) — si sono separati dal cantante Tomas “Tompa” Lindberg. Al suo posto, la band ha annunciato l’ingresso in lineup di Kevin Sharp dei Brutal Truth. Ecco il comunicato della band:
“Unfortunately, we have to announce the departure of our brother and longtime vocalist Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear).
For the record, there’s absolutely no bad blood or drama involved and we wish Tompa nothing but the best in all his future endeavours.
As you all know, At The Gates have just released a brand new, killer album, and the subsequent touring schedule that will follow means Tompa simply won’t have any free time to commit to Lock Up’s imminent future plans of recording a new album or any live performances that will follow.
So please welcome our good friend and partner in grind, Mr. Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth into the ranks of the band as our new full-time vocalist.
Kevin made his debut live appearance with Lock Up at Manizales Grita Rock festival in Colombia back in early October with only 10 days notice to learn 22 songs.
This is a very exciting and brand new chapter for the band as we prepare to enter the studio in the coming months to record our follow-up album to ‘Necropolis Transparent’, which came out on Nuclear Blast Records back in 2011.
The band is currently busy in writing mode and currently seeking a new label home and hope for an early summer release of the as-yet-untitled new album.”
