Pennywise has formally announced vocalist Zoli Teglas of Ignite as their new lead singer. Teglas replaces longtime Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg who left last year. Teglas will (again) join Pennywise on its upcoming European tour which kicks off this April. That tour will be preceded by a few warm up West Coast dates that start on March 17 in San Diego, CA. Pennywise is currently at work on a new record, its first featuring the new lineup.
Bassist Randy Bradbury explains,
What started out as a temporary position was just too good to put an end to. Zoli brings to the table a tremendous vocal ability, creativity, and a die hard work ethic. There is a bond that makes this change feel like it was simply meant to be, and considering the recent unfortunate events, having Zoli join the band is a well needed shot of positive energy.
Pennywise released Reason to Believe in 2008.
