Malefice Announce New Guitarist!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 17th October 2011 by Nico Davidson

After standing in for Alex Vuskans on the band’s recent UK tour with Sylosis, Malefice have announced that Andy Wilson will take over on a permanent basis.

Andy Wilson had the following to say: “I am very excited to be taking on the Malefice slot full time, the Sylosis tour couldn’t have gone any better and the musical chemistry is undeniable. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the band.”

Frontman Dale Butler also added: “There’s always controversy surrounding a band member leaving in any band. But I can’t stress enough how there is none in this situation. Alex felt he could no longer continue to give 100% to Malefice, and between us we decided that it would be better for him to leave. Alex is closer to me than most of my family, he’ll always be my brother no matter what and nothing will change between us all on a personal level.

Those of you that saw us on the Sylosis tour will have seen Andy at work. The guy is a fucking machine, and I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather have as my lead guitarist! Andy has already brought new ideas to this band that we’ll be working on together in the future!”

Upon his departure from the band Alex Vuskans bows out with this: “I just want to say a massive massive thank you to everyone that’s come to the shows, bought our albums and supported myself and the boys over the last 10 years that I’ve been in Malefice. You guys are awesome and have helped create memories that last with me for a lifetime. I also want to go on record and state that there is NO bad blood between myself and the other members in the band; they still and always will be my brothers no matter what. I simply feel that now is the time for me to try new things in my life, whatever they may be. I wish nothing but success to the guys for the future and look forward to following their continued journey as a fan and not an active member. It’s been emotional!”

Malefice have announced they will play two very special shows in October. Having just finished up a monstrous tour with Sylosis and label mates Anterior the Reading outfit have been added to the bill of the Metal Hammer 25th birthday party in London along with Orange Goblin, Dirty DC and more to be announced. Tickets are at a 1986 price of £2.50!

A week later they will join Skindred, Therapy?, Rolo Tomassi, Yashin and The Treatment at the Jagermeister ‘Ice Cold In Birmingham’ special on the 31st.
