Swedish metallers DEATHDESTRUCTION have announced the addition of singer Tony Jelencovich to the group’s ranks.
Commented the band: “Tony is a friend to the band, and he has truly made a mark in the Gothenburg scene with bands like B-THONG, TRANSPORT LEAGUE and MASSIVE AUDIO NERVE. He’s also worked with bands like MNEMIC and the Russian band ICON IN ME.
“Tony has everything we look for in a lead singer and a frontman, so the choice was just so easy when we had to find ourselves a new singer. We’re totally stoked about what he will contribute to DEATHDESTRUCTION! This is going to be so fucking good, people!!”
Added Tony: “I’m really happy excited to be the new singer and frontman in DEATHDESTRUCTION! This is now, and the new tracks will swing, groove and be hard like God’s own dick!!!”
