Praying Mantis Fire Singer and Drummer

(Classic Rock) Praying Mantis have fired singer Mike Freeland and drummer Gary Mackenzie. Both musicians who have been part of the NWOBHM band for several years, but have a history of collaboration going back 20 years say the decision was not theirs.

In a statement Freeland says: "It is with great sadness that I have to tell you all that I am no longer a member of Praying Mantis. Please know that this was not my decision.

"On a more positive note, I've had the most incredible seven years; I have been to some truly amazing places and met some fantastic people you guys. I can't thank you all enough for your support and for the great times. Keep the faith!" more on this story
