DARK ANGEL Posts Rehearsal FootageMonday, 21st October 2013
Recently reunited L.A. thrash legends DARK ANGEL have posted a short video of Eric Meyer (guitar), Jim Durkin (guitar), Ron Rinehart (vocals) and Michael Gonzalez (bass) running through a set of the band’s classic songs in a rehearsal room.
As previously reported, DARK ANGEL will reform for a limited number of appearances in 2014 in the U.S. and select festivals in Europe. These dates are still pending and have not yet been booked at this time.
DARK ANGEL’s management issued a statement last month accusing former singer Don Doty of displaying a “lack of responsibility” by posting “false information” and starting “unfounded rumors” that have been “creating confusion” among the group’s fans.
Doty previously made an online posting in which he claimed that Hoglan would not take part in the DARK ANGEL reunion because Gene was “unable to make the practices” due to his “many commitments.”
DARK ANGEL guitarist Jim Durkin said in a statement that any talk of the band’s reunion was “premature,” and added that “when I was last in the band, Ron Rinehart was my singer. And IF the band were to come back and continue. he would STILL be my singer. He was our rock when we needed him and there is NO WAY I would do this without him. He and I talk daily and are as close now as ever. If anything, all this talk has brought us all back into more frequent contact! Which is a wonderful thing.”
