Alabama Thunderpussy has announced the addition of vocalist Kyle Thomas (ex- Exhorder / Floodgate) to its lineup.

Thomas states: "This band is stocked with amazing musicians and most importantly quality people. It's great to be in the fold and an honor to be considered by such a great, hard working band as Alabama Thunderpussy. Above all, a big thank you to goes out to Karrie Hill for contacting me so that this could all be possible.".

"Kyle is a world class singer with an impressive résumé that includes being a founding member of seminal New Orleans metal band Exhorder and singing with other acts including Floodgate, Pitts Vs Preps And Trouble." comments ATP drummer Bryan Cox. Cox continues; "With the singer situation resolved, we will be headed quickly toward hitting the studio and getting it [the new record] on tape. If you are at all familiar with Kyle's work, then you know what he is going to bring to this ATP record. It will be very special and we feel honored and fortunate to be taking the next step forward as Alabama Thunderpussy with him as a part of the team."

Guitarist Erik Larson adds "We knew right away that Kyle was the man for the singer spot when we heard him singing on some of the new material. Personally, as an Exhorder fan, I felt a bit star struck that this guy was singing on our music. It's amazing. So we got him up to RVA for a visit / meet and greet / rehearse - ie: alcoholocaust ATP style. It went perfectly. Couldn't have asked for a better dude to join the band. I'm f*cking stoked!"

Alabama Thunderpussy has been writing for the new record since last July with the music for 14 songs already completed. The writing process will be rounded out with the addition of Thomas's vocals for what will be their sixth full-length studio album. Expect to see ATP road-testing this new material soon.
