Arsis frontman to miss band's upcoming tour

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 2:49 PM PT

Arsis will be touring as part of the "Frets of Fury Tour" this October with Firewind, White Wizzard, and Nightrage. And although the band will be performing some brand new material on the tour, guitarist/vocalist (and primary songwriter) Jim Malone will not be there. Malone has offered up the following explanation:

"Due to professional and personal commitments I am unable to tour with Arsis at this time. For the upcoming tour with Firewind, rather than drop off the tour entirely, we've decided to hire live musicians, some of whom have long been associated with my band. I have given Nick and Noah my blessing and am certain the lineup will be great. My sincerest apologies to anyone who is annoyed or disappointed by my absence. Please go and support Arsis and check out some of our new songs, which they will be playing every night!"

Bummer. Might as well have the rest of the band play. Why not??

In a lot of bands, this wouldn't matter, but as I recall, Malone is the only "real" member anyway.

can you imagine an actual poll that just says "Should this band Vanflip? 0-yes 0-no" that would make my day.

Cover band city. He is Arsis. I mean, he's the only member most of the time.

Write songs. set up tour. hire band. skip tour. still profit. plan rules.
