Ex-Animosity singer to tour with Drumcorps
Official press release: Drumcorps, solo producer and performer Aaron Spectre, best known for his energetic live sets mashing up breakcore and metal, will be joined on tour this summer by Leo Miller. Former frontman for acclaimed San Francisco death metal outfit Animosity, Miller will be adding vocals and electronics to the already hectic Drumcorps live show. Both gentlemen have stayed busy, although out of the spotlight, during the past year. Spectre relocated to the US, finished recording his follow up to 2006's Grist and logged a single show - headlining a sold-out one-off in Lebanon. Meanwhile, Miller's band broke up and he moved out east to study the environment. Fans worldwide mourned the break-up of one of metal's most promising bands, just as they were hitting their musical stride. But the trademark growl and commanding stage presence is back. After having collaborated together on the Drumcorps/Animosity Altered Beast EP, and with both of them on the East Coast, Spectre invited Miller into the studio to lay down some vocals for the new Drumcorps album. The studio sessions went well. So well, in fact, that Spectre insisted Miller be added to the line-up when summer gig offers started coming in. "Working with Leo has been incredible - he's got so much experience and professionalism and yet can still get enthused about what he's doing." Fans of both Animosity and Drumcorps can anticipate that the combined talents of these two frontmen - each seasoned performers in their own right - will guarantee a show of unprecedented intensity. Adding to the excitement is Spectre's promise to debut new Drumcorps tracks. However, with both Miller and Spectre having separate priorities, it's not known how long or if this line-up will continue after the upcoming string of summer dates.
