Barren Earth

ANNOUNCES NEW LEAD SINGER

Barren Earth has recruited Faroese native Jón Aldará as the
band's new lead vocalist. The band has been busy fine-tuning and
demoing songs for it's third full-length album which it plans to start
recording during spring 2014.
 
"As a fan of Barren Earth from the very beginning, I had no doubts
about showing my interest in the singer position. And now that things
have started rolling and I've had some time to look at the new
material, I'm extremely excited to be part of the band's future. Now
let's rock!" says Jón Aldárá.
 
"Jón is a friend with a strong voice that simply is no less than a
perfect fit for our material - old and new. I was grinning like crazy
as we ran through a handful of new songs at our first rehearsal with
him after sending demos back and forth over email the past couple of
months, everything was just sounding so good. There's just no way to
put this without sounding cliched as hell but his contribution to the
new material has indeed already taken the sound of the band to a new
level. Can't wait to hit the stage and the studio!" comments Janne
Perttilä.
 
Barren Earth is:
 
Jón Aldará - lead vocals
Sami Yli-Sirniö - guitars
Janne Perttilä - guitars
Olli-Pekka Laine - bass
Kasper Mårtenson - keyboards
Marko Tarvonen - drums

Mikko departs Barren Earth

Finland’s death/prog metal masters Barren Earth have announced the departure of vocalist Mikko Kotamäki from the group. Since the band’s inception, Mikko has performed vocals on all of the band’s studio recordings, consisting of the Our Twilight debut EP, & 2 full-length albums.

Band statement:
"Dear friends. We regret to announce the departure of Mikko Kotamäki from BARREN EARTH.
Due to conflicting schedules, Mikko cannot contribute to BARREN EARTH's activities any longer. The decision was made by mutual agreement with absolutely no drama involved.
We will keep working on new material, and will launch search for a new vocalist shortly.
BARREN EARTH wants to thank Mikko for his crucial input for BARREN EARTH's works and wishes him all the best in the future."
