After weeks of rumors, The Human Abstract have now parted ways with vocalist Travis Richter. Reasons for his departure remain unclear.

His temporary replacement for the upcoming Frak The Gods Tour featuring Periphery, Textures and The Contortionist will be Ryan Devlin - current vocalist of San Diego progressive metal band Corelia. The Frak The Gods Tour takes place next week. Get all dates here.

Quoted Devlin: "I am very excited for the opportunity, and hope you will come see me on tour."


Richter apparently issued the following statement explaining his departure: "A couple months ago I told the guys I wasn't going to tour anymore for a couple reasons. One, I'm turning 30 and have given all my time to bands and the road, and I want to be able to start a family and see my parents and grandparents more. Secondly, I graduated with an audio production degree, and I feel myself being pulled into that world as more of a full time position. I think The Human Abstract is an amazingly gifted group of musicians with mind bending potential and I couldn't thank them enough for everything they've done for me since I joined the band in feb of 2010. The fans have also been more than amazing and accepted me into the THA family, and for that I sincerely thank you!"

It is weird that this band doesn't seem to have a profile on metalstorm yet. It looks like they would qualify.
