Just three months ago, after the departure of original vocalist Matthew Bizilia, the guys of Icarus Witch were joined by a replacement vocalist Christopher Shaner. However, due to contractual obligations Christopher had prior to joining Icarus Witch, he will be unable to join the band for the first 3 dates of the Y&T tour that kicks off next Friday in Portland, Oregon. The band has, however, found a temporary replacement in vocalist Jason Russo.

In a statement on their MySpace blog, the band says: "We first had the pleasure to hear this guy wail a few years back when he was fronting Lifeforce Records artist, Herod. Since that time we also played a show in Cleveland with his band, Darkling. With a voice somewhere between TNT & Helloween on the high end and a ballsy growl that would make King Diamond proud, he's the perfect fit for this temporary fill in. We are most grateful that he's agreed to take this challenge on such a short notice. Portland, Seattle & Spokane are in for a rare treat. Don't take our word for it; check out his pipes at here."
