Vicious Rumors have announced that they have recruited former American Idol contestant Nick Courtney to take over as lead vocalist on their upcoming tour.

The band will be hitting the road for the Digital Dictator 30th Anniversary Tour of North America which will include 46 stops. The band hired Courtney on the recommendation of former frontman Brian Allen after he was forced to exit over "schedule and direction conflicts"
