Mercyful Fate welcome Becky Baldwin as their permanent bassist

Mercyful Fate

As many expected, Mercyful Fate has announced the addition of bassist Becky Baldwin hailing from Birmingham, England as a permanent member of the band after the band split with Joey Vera earlier this week. Baldwin previously filled in for Vera during Mercyful Fate's 2022 U.S. tour and has now been recruited as the band's permanent bassist. 

Mercyful Fate will be performing in Chile and Brazil in April, where fans will have the opportunity to see Becky Baldwin in her new permanent role with the band.

In a statement, Becky said:

It is a great honour to now be a permanent member of Mercyful Fate. I can't wait to join the recording of the new album. When I joined as a stand-in on the 2022 US tour, the acceptance and encouragement from the fans was exceptional. A huge thanks to the band, team and fans for the warm welcome. See you in Chile and Brazil this coming April!
