Dirge Within Recruit Divine Heresy Frontman As Their New Singer

Dirge Within have recruited Divine Heresy's Travis Neal to replace Jeremy "Jerms" Genske as their vocalist.

Back in August the band announced via their Facebook page that they were having issues with Genske with the following: "As a few of you have been inquiring, we feel the need to be honest with our fans. We did have a fill in singer last night at the House of Blues Chicago with Static-X. There have been many events leading up to our singer's departure from the band, although he has not contacted any of us yet and officially quit. Jerms has been absent from many practices while the rest of the band has been hard at work rehearsing and preparing for shows. He refused to be in certain scenes in our latest video unless his girlfriend could also be in the video, which the rest of the band did not agree with. He has made it very difficult for us to work with him and has not shown interest in being a part of this band. We were told by Jerms that he could not play this show due to personal reasons.

"As a band, we decided that we wanted to be there for our fans and continue on to play the show last minute using fill in singer "Adam Gilley" from Product Of Hate. We were asked personally by Wayne Static to play this show and no one in the band wanted to miss out on playing such a killer show with good friends. We have had to decline three shows prior due to Jerm's personal schedule and the band did not feel like he has been honest with us. This band respects our fans and will continue to put forth are best efforts as we always have, in order to deliver an amazing show and music."

On Wednesday they also took to their Facebook page to announce his replacement: "We are extremely proud and excited to announce Travis Neal as our new vocalist! The band has wasted no time and has begun writing new material as well as planning some new shows in Feb. We have also put together a raw 100% LIVE rehearsal video of us jamming on some material off of both records so all of our amazing fans can get a nice taste of what's to come. We are excited for all to join us In this new chapter. We will have some more cool stuff surfacing online very soon so keep on the look out!!"

Various media reports state that this is the same Travis Neal that fronts Divine Heresy. The band also posted rehearsal video with their new frontman. Check it out here.
