Dirty Rig Switch Singers
"We wish Kory all the best in the world with his various projects. Kory is a champ and a lifer in the music scene. He has spent nearly his first 50 years rocking out and we are sure he will be rocking for another 50 years." states the band.
Since returning from their UK Tour, DIRTY RIG have auditioned over 60 singers and they now feel they are back to their fighting weight with the new addition of Tom Morrissey as their frontman. "We are so f***ing excited to have Tom leading this band now. Tom can really sing his balls off and he writes some killer melodies. Its a true blessing." adds founding member and bassist Buckshot.
DIRTY RIG will be in the September 22nd issue of Classic Rock Magazine that will feature the bands new singer on the magazines upcoming CD sampler. The magazine wanted the band to cover a song that was in a movie so the members of the band decided to run a promotion/contest with Myspace and let the fans determine the out come of the cover song.
"There are so many great songs out there and everyone in the band had a different idea of what song to cover. I wanted to do something by Waylon Jennings or ACDC, Dave wanted to cover a Rush track, Tom wanted to do a Cheap Trick tune and Buckshot wanted to cover Cockroaches from Killing Technology by Voivod even though that song was never in a movie. So we just said let the fans on Myspace decide. We dont know how this particular song got picked but what ever. We said we would do what ever song was chosen and we did. We always keep our word If you don't keep your word, then you ain't worth squat." recalls Chas, the bands Guitarist about the decision process.
