Artist News: Symphony X Bassist Joins Sleep Hollow

Posted on Wednesday, August 10 @ 23:30:00 UTC by nightowl

Reunited heavy metal band Sleepy Hollow has recruited Mike LePond (Symphony X) as its new bassist. LePond will make his live debut with Sleepy Hollow on November 5 at Metal'cuse at the Fusion Room in Syracuse, New York. This will be Sleepy Hollow's first show in over 20 years. The band is also planning a few more concerts for later this year in mid-November and into early December.

Commented Sleepy Hollow: "Our original bass player, Steve Brink, was not able to commit to us in any capacity. He did contribute the artwork for our new album and we thank him with the understanding that although he will not participate in any future projects with us, he will, however, always be a part of the Sleepy Hollow family. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors. As for Mike LePond, he has graciously accepted to step in for us until a permanent member is found and needless to say we are thrilled to have him with us for our live shows later this year."

"Midnight", the new video from the Sleepy Hollow, can be seen here. The song comes off the group's new album, Skull 13, due this fall via Pure Steel Records/High Roller Records. The CD was recorded primarily at No Oulet Studio in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania with producers Steve Stegg and Eric Fisher.
