The Wounded Kings - Sharie Neyland Leaves, Original Singer Returns

Doom metallers The Wounded Kings released a new album this year called Consolamentum. However, the band is now facing a line-up change as singer Sharie Neyland decided to leave for personal reasons. The Wounded Kings have brought back original vocalist George Birch who will join the band on their European tour. Sharie Neyland had been with the band since 2011.

The band's statement: "As of now, Sharie Neyland is no longer a member of the band. She has left for personal reasons. Obviously this came as a shock as we have show commitments and a European tour with dates to honour. With all this in mind we knew we had to bring out the big guns...

"Original TWK vocalist George Birch is back! (Embrace Of The Narrow House, The Shadow Over Atlantis and An Introduction To The Black Arts split 12" with Cough)

"If you wondered what George would have sounded like, what his take would have been on the new material, or you never got to see tracks like 'The Baptism Of Atlantis' performed live... Well this is your chance! For the first time ever... Our live set will feature songs from all 4 of our albums... See you there... Please share this with anyone you feel will be interested to know."

Damn. Her vocals were what got me into The Wounded Kings so it's a shame to see her go...

Glad she's gone. Now they can stop trend hopping with the chick doom and get on with it.

The best album this band released was with her on vocals. Consolamentum is a fucking gem mainly because of her vocals. I never liked this guy as his voice is bland and average and he obviously pulls down the whole experience. Sharie was a true blessing... too bad she is gone... oh well, shit happens.
