Alan Tecchio last year stepped down as the SEVEN WITCHES lead vocalist, feeling that he could not be fully committed to the project. The band’s new CD, however, features Alan singing his version of one of the new cuts (same music, different lyrics and melodies) as a bonus track.

“We are very excited to unveil the latest incarnation of the band,” exlaims vocalist Anthony Cross (a.k.a. Anthony Regalbuto), who is said to have “a completely different approach to the SEVEN WITCHES brand.

“I’m happy to be a part of the band and look forward to continue in the history that is SEVEN WITCHES.”

After over 20 different vocalist submissions, Cross was chosen to bring a different dimension to the already well-known WITCHES sound. In recent years, he spent time singing for bands like LIVESAY, SHADOW IMAGE, FISCHEL’S BEAST, ATTACKER, and most recently, the IRON MAIDEN tribute act SANCTUARY. Rounding out the new lineup is the massive rhythm team of Ronnie Parkes (SLIPPERY WHEN WET, FARCRY) on bass and Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DANZIG, SEVENTH VOID, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH) on drums.

SEVEN WITCHES states: “Our goal is to bring you something unpredictable that you can sink your teeth into and walk away feeling ’till the next morning.”

Vocalist James Rivera (HELSTAR, VICIOUS RUMORS, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM) announced his departure from SEVEN WITCHES in September 2011.

Rivera sang on SEVEN WITCHES“Passage To The Other Side” (2003), “Year Of The Witch” (2004) and “Call Upon The Wicked” (2011) albums.

“Call Upon The Wicked” was released on June 3, 2011 via Massacre Records.
