Skeletonwitch Replace Vocalist Chance Garnette for Upcoming Tour
Skeletonwitch’s singer Chance Garnette will not be singing with the group on their upcoming European tour and it looks like the band may have actually parted ways with the vocalist altogether. The band has not made an official announcement about the split, but Chance Garnette is no longer listed as a member of the group on their Facebook page and in a post on the site. The group announced that Andy Horn will be their singer on their upcoming international trek.
“Hails to Andy Horn! This metal maniac will be handling vocal duties on our upcoming Euro tour. We go way back with this guy,” the post read. “He got nuts with Cannabis Corpse and gets nuts with Battlemaster. Come see him get nuts with us.” You can see the full posting below. Horn provided vocals for Cannabis Corpse from 2006 through 2011, before he left the group to pursue other musical interests. Skeletonwitch's international trek kicks off on Apr. 3 in Oslo, Norway and they'll tour the world through May 9 when they perform in Athens, Greece.
This isn’t the first time Garnette has stepped away from the group. In October of last year, he had to deal with “serious personal issues” and left the band in the middle of their tour. The remaining Skeletonwitch members finished out the trek as a four-piece instrumental outfit.
Chance, who is the older brother of current Skeletonwitch guitarist Nate, has not commented on the alleged split from the group. His Twitter account still has Skeletonwitch listed on his profile summary. He has not be talking about the band, but has been actively posting about his leather accessory company FrostCult.
