Ohio’s Axemaster has posted the following announcement online about parting ways with the band’s vocalist:

“Axemaster would like to announce a change in the band’s lineup; Geoff McGraw has replaced Tony Webster as their lead vocalist. Due to personal issues Tony was unable to do any work with the project for a significant length of time and had informed the band that he was unsure as to whether he would ever be able to continue.

“After allowing some time to see if the problems could be resolved, it became clear that a change was needed in order to be able to move forward with the band in general and the new album in particular. We all wish Tony the very best for the future and hope that he finds success in whatever path he chooses.

“Enter new vocalist Geoff McGraw! Geoff has been performing and singing since he was practically old enough to walk and at a young age developed a huge appetite for all things heavy metal. He has been a member of various local original bands across the state of Ohio for many years and is very much looking forward to working with Axemaster. The band is extremely happy to have found a singer of Geoff’s quality and plan to immediately begin working with him on writing and recording the vocals for the new album.

“Also a longtime and avid guitar player, Geoff intends to attempt to double his duties within Axemaster and take on the 2nd guitar position as well. Once he finishes recording all the vocal tracks for the new album the band will seriously look into this possibility. With all the right pieces in place and having overcome many obstacles, Axemaster now looks toward a bright future of finishing the release and putting the show on the road live!”

Guitarist Joe Sims said: “From the very beginning I have been impressed with everything about Geoff. He’s a talented singer who’s voice fits PERFECTLY with what we do musically. Plus he’s an excellent songwriter, has a great attitude, and is really easy to work with. It’s the kind of unique combination you always hope to find in a singer, or any band member for that matter.”

Geoff comments: “I am honored and excited to be offered the opportunity to join Axemaster, and can’t wait to help bring the new music to the world.”
