Betrayal Announce New Vocalist

With the recording sessions for their new album underway at Maple Studios in Orange County, CA with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Sum 41), Betrayal have announced the addition of a new vocalist. Brendan Foley has exited the band due to a medical condition involving his vocal cords. Taking his place is Gage Armstrong, who commented of his addition:

“I think the lyrical content comes from me looking into my past and truly just being upset and angry. When we were putting together this album I was going through a lot of personal issues with my family and just life in general, so writing really helped me release and come to terms with all the hatred and angst that I had built up inside of me. It helped put things into perspective that my life is ok, and I’m going to be ok.”

A spring release on Mediaskare is being eyed for the as-yet untitled effort.
