Agent Steel - Part Ways With Vocalist, Reunite With Original Singer


Original news, posted on 25.04.2010

US Speed/Thrash metallers Agent Steel have issued the following short update:

"For those who have not heard the news; Agent Steel has parted ways with vocalist Bruce Hall [ex-Steel Prophet] on good terms. We're still writing new material for our upcoming 6th studio album that we plan on recording sometime this year. We will issue a press release regarding our "search" for a new vocalist; who knows? We may have one already... so stay tuned."


UPDATE (thanks to Bad English and Hellish Star)

Only a few days after Agent Steel announced having parted ways with Bruce Hall, the band now confirmed that none other than original vocalist John Cyriis has returned to the fold - which is fan-fucking-tastic news!

Here's the official word from the band: "As some of you may or may not have already heard the news that Agent Steel has parted ways with vocalist Bruce Hall. We as a band would like to acknowledge the accomplishments together with Bruce and the three solid metal offerings; Omega Conspiracy, Order Of The Illuminati and Alienigma'. Together we had the fortune of touring and sharing the stage in some amazing places and visited some breathtaking countries. Bruce dedicated over a decade to Agent Steel and for this he should be recognized, and we part on good terms. We as a band still have the fire and passion to deliver the metal goods to fans from the past, present and future.

We had been writing new material for the next chapter of Agent Steel and after the news got out that we separated from Bruce, we were contacted by original singer, John Cyriis. Call it destiny; call it what you will, but now the communicative channel is open between Agent Steel and vocalist Cyriis; we are in talks about an imminent Agent Steel reunion tour possibly involving summer/autumn 2010 appearances and an extensive "2011" metal blitz.

Honestly, we do not know how long this reunion will last; however this could be the long-awaited destiny of Agent Steel originally interrupted, so long as everything moves forward in an evolving good working climate. Our objective regarding this Agent Steel reunion is attached with the intentions of providing the opportunity to not only the dedicated fans, but also to a whole new generation of metal fans the chance to see Agent Steel live on stage with Cyriis; the original voice on the classic Skeptics Apocalypse, Unstoppable Force and Mad Locust Rising releases. The legacy continues..."
