I Declare War has announced the permanent addition of vocalist Jamie Hanks to their ranks. Hanks has been filling in for the group since July, when singer Jonathan Huber quit the band. Prior to joining I Declare War, Hanks spent five years as the vocalist of death metal band Those Who Lie Beneath. "We are very fortunate and extremely lucky to have Jamie join the band. He's an absolute perfect fit for us, both on and off stage. The past couple of tours with him have been nothing but fun," comments guitarist Evan Hughes. "He's got an unbelievable voice, great stage presence, and he really cares about what he does. We have been longtime friends and fans of Those Who Lie Beneath, so we're excited to have Jamie involved in I Declare War." I Declare War will be re-recording a track from Malevolence, their Artery Recordings debut album, to feature the vocals of Hanks. "Putrification of the Population" will be available for streaming by early next year via the band's MySpace page.
