THE CONTORTIONIST Snag LAST CHANCE TO REASON Vocalist To Front Band

Friday, 21st June 2013

Mike Lessard of LAST CHANCE TO REASON has been selected to be the lead singer of Indiana-based progressive metallers THE CONTORTIONIST. Lessard replaces Jonathan Carpenter, who left the band earlier this year.

“We’re very excited about this announcement,” says THE CONTORTIONIST guitarist Robby Bacca. “The run of dates we did with him as a fill-in were a much needed breath of fresh air. He brings to the table all kinds of new dynamics that will help fuel the progression of the band’s sound onto the next record and onward.”.

Adds Lessard: “I’ve been a friend and a fan of the band for a long time, so these are exciting times. I can’t wait to hit the road and the studio with these talented gentlemen. I believe this to be the start of a beautiful experience.”

LAST CHANCE TO REASON will scaling back its own activity but will tour this summer with THE CONTORTIRIONIST’s very own Bacca on guitar.

THE CONTORTIONIST has announced new tour dates supporting BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME this fall. Dates stretch coast to coast, kicking off in Winston Salem, North Carolina on September 13 and wrapping up more than a month later in Nashville, Tennessee.
