Gorgoroth have fired their singer Pest and have lined up a guest singer for their next tour and a separate singer for their new album. The band had this to say about the turn of events:
"Out of respect for and loyalty to Gorgoroth's audience and collaborators, Infernus has kicked Pest out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil.
"Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of Taake will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7, 2012.
"As for the next Gorgoroth studio album 'Instinctus Bestalis', vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band Triumfall (Forces of Satan Records)."
