ONSLAUGHT vocalist Sy Keeler will sit out the bands upcoming THRASH INVSION TOUR of the US/Canada/South America, featuring ONSLAUGHT/ARTILLERY/VX36 due to health issues with his son.

Sy Keeler comments:

"I know you are going to be disappointed with my decision as am I, but I sincerely hope you can understand our situation.

My reason for this is the ongoing health issues with my son who has been suffering with a debilitating illness for some time, he is still on a downward path with no sign of any recovery on the horizon, therefore to be away for 2 months will put a lot of pressure on the family and increased anxiety on my son. We also have regular visits to specialists coming up during the next 6 months. Therefore at this time I am having to think of my family first and sadly I am unable to be away in the Americas for the duration intended.."

ONSLAUGHT guitarist Nige Rockett adds:

"We’re extremely gutted that Sy cannot make this tour and of course we wish Sy’s family all the best in this difficult time, we are positive things will improve in the very near future and look forward to having Sy with us back real soon..

It was a really tough decision for us to make also, but Sy was very supportive that we take out a replacement vocalist to make this tour happen.

So much work had already been carried out by our management/booking agents/promoters behind the scenes it would have been unfair to let our team down, the other bands down and most importantly not to let our fans down.

On a positive note, It’s gonna be awesome to have Neil Turbin on board for the tour, for me he’s always been one of the best Thrash Metal vocalists out there no question, his work on the ANTHRAX album Fistful Of Metal was simply amazing and I believe he’s one of the only guys in the genre who could step into Sy’s shoes. I think It brings a unique edge to this tour and I’m sure the fans will really dig what they hear..!!"
