Veteran metal outfit Sanctuary hit the road this week for a new string of live dates with label mates Iced Earth, and with the tour’s launch, the band also announced another new addition to its lineup.
The band has brought Joey Concepcion (Armageddon, The Absence) to handle guitar duties for the tour. Most recently, the band tapped vocalist Joseph Michael (Witherfall) to take the place of Warrel Dane (Nevermore, Sanctuary), who sadly died from a heart attack late last December in Sao Paulo, Brazil while recording his then most recent solo album.
Concepcion said in an interview ahead of the tour’s launch, that he was looking forward to joining Sanctuary for its new tour.
“I’m very stoked to be playing with Sanctuary on their upcoming tour,” Concepcion said. “I’ve been a fan since I was in high school, listening to ‘Into The Mirror Black.’ I’m looking forward to playing these songs live and honoring the legacy of Warrel Dane.”
