Lorna Shore to still release new album featuring fired singer

Two weeks ago Lorna Shore dismissed vocalist CJ McCreery after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced. At the time, it was unclear if the band's new album, Immortal, would still be released on January 31 as planned, and still feature McCreery's already-recorded vocals. Today, Lorna Shore revealed that the answer to both questions is: yes. Here's the official word:
"Lorna Shore wants to take a moment to thank all our fans and the metal community for all of your support while we have been dealing with the aftermath of our recent decision to move forward without CJ McCreery on vocals. "Today, we are announcing that we, in conjunction with the understanding and incredibly supportive people at Century Media Records, have made the decision to release our new album, 'Immortal' on January 31, 2020 as planned. The decision was something we did not take lightly. We have already begun the search for a new vocalist, and we have every intention to continue Lorna Shore stronger than ever. Our fans and the metal community have been extremely patient through multiple delays surrounding this album. You've waited long enough. It makes no sense to scrap or revise the record with new vocals, which was a feeling shared by both the band and label. "So to be clear - Lorna Shore is all systems go. We will have further announcements regarding a new vocalist as soon as possible. Europe/UK tour with Decapitated is happening. Don't believe anything you hear unless you hear it from us. We won't let you down."
