There's a major change afoot in hard rocking outfit The Contortionist as frontman Jonathan Carpenter has announced his exit from the group. The vocalist and his longtime girlfriend are expecting their first child and he made the decision to focus on his home life. The band, however, have moved quickly to continue their career, naming Last Chance to Reason's Mike Lessard as their temporary replacement.
Congrats to Hatebreed for snatching their second consecutive win in our latest Death Match. The hardcore heroes managed to beat out death metal veterans Nile, but now, we've got a band from the new school of technical death to face Hatebreed.
Hatebreed's new album, 'The Divinity of Purpose,' will be released Jan. 25 in Europe and Jan. 29 in the United States, and now the band has announced a headlining U.S. tour kicking off in late January.
