Will Haven rejoined by original singer

Will Haven founding member and original singer Grady Avenell has now rejoined the band. Avenell departed the group in early-2007 to focus on his family. Will Haven has issued the following statement: "After a little time off and doing a few benefit shows for our brother Chi Cheng of the Deftones, we are back to work. As some of you may have seen Grady did join us for a few of the benefit shows we did for Chi and also an amazing show in San Francisco a few months ago. After those shows we had a few dicussions about will havens future and Grady expressed that he would like to be a part of it. So after working out details I am very happy to say that we are currently working on a new record with Grady handling the vocal duties. Jeff Jaworski will still be a big part of the band and helping with the writting process on the new record. So we are more than excited to be all working together on making an amazing record. "We have been demoing a few songs and I can say that I could not be happier. We will continue to keep everyone up to date on when we expect to have a record out, hopefully in January next year or earlier. We may do one or two shows while we are working on the record so we will post them up when we figure out when and where; definitely look for us to be in the Los Angeles area soon. That will most likely mark our first 'official' show with Grady. So we are more than excited to have Grady back with us, the time away has done him good because he is back with more rage than ever."

Wow unreal. I remember buying my ticket 9 years ago to see Will Haven supporting Slipknot and Kittie, and Haven cancelled. I was so depressed.

The Heirophant was decent, but I'm glad this is happening. Easily my most anticipated album next year.


TronxTaylor 10/13/2009 11:07:03 AM

I'm sorry, but am I the only one that thinks this band is a Deftones clone?
