Breaking news from the side of Vicious Rumors. The legendary US metal band welcomes a new member ... on lead vocals Mr Ronny Munroe!! They said big news was coming and this freight train had arrived!! 

Ronny Munroe rose to notoriety in the metal world as lead vocalist for METAL CHURCH and cemented his name even further in TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. Along with 3 solo albums and a new release with "Between Worlds", Ronny is a seasoned pro who continues to amaze audiences the world over with his distinctive, melodic and powerful voice and stage presence.

Vicious Rumors guitar player Geoff Thorpe said: "I've been following Ronny for years, always intrigued with the power, tone and professionalism he delivers. The possibility of working together has been on my mind since we met and became friends in 2007. Now that time is here!! The band and I couldn't be more excited for the future and for our next studio album on SPV/ Steamhammer in 2023!"

Ronny Munroe: "I've been a fan of VICIOUS RUMORS since their inception and it's an honor for me to step in and add my touch to the already stellar legacy of the band. Great Songs, great musicians. It doesn't get any better than that! See you all soon!"

It is official. The surviving members of Pantera are going to embark on a Pantera "reunion" tour in 2023. Philip Anselmo (vocals) and Rex Brown (bass) have signed with Artist Group International to book their North American dates. Peter Pappalardo, one of the responsible agents, said: "We are thrilled to be working with such an iconic band and bringing their music back to the fans". Pantera's line-up will include Zakk Wylde on guitar and Charlie Benante (Anthrax) on the drums. So, Wylde and Benante, along with singer Philip Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown, will tour as Pantera, headlining a number of major festivals across North America and Europe and staging some of their own headline concerts.

The whole matter is controversial though, since there cannot be any Pantera without Dimebag Darell and Vinnie Paul.  

Some days after the apotheosis of Alice Cooper and his band in Athens, Greece, Nita Strauss suddenly announces that she is leaving the Alice Cooper band and that all her solo live shows are cancelled! The 35-year old guitarist shared the following text at her Instagram page:

"After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you guys know that I will not be joining the Alice Cooper band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also regretfully have to cancel the festival dates my solo band had planned for the rest of the year. I AM NOT PREGNANT!!! There is no drama whatsoever and my touring year is still VERY full- in fact, I'm on a flight straight into the next adventure as I post this, and I'll be on stage again much sooner than you think! But that's news for another day. The past eight years together has been the experience of a lifetime, and I could not be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me to all of your nightmare. I don't know what the future will hold after this, but I am forever thankful".

Let's see which her next musical step will be, but also if she will be replaced in the band of Alice Cooper and by whom! 

***It was a rumor and now it is official - Nita Strauss joined Demi Lovato's touring band. She already made her live debut with Lovato, at the late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Alice Cooper replace Nita Strauss with guitarist Kane Roberts.
