Linsk is filling in for HAIL!‘s regular guitarist, Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA), who was unable to make the band’s current European dates due to scheduling conflicts.
Owens, Bostaph, Lomenzo and Kisser completed a South American HAIL! tour in early March.
A slightly different lineup of HAIL! — featuring Owens, Bostaph, Lomenzo and guitarist Glen Drover (MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND) — played in China and Taiwan in December.
HAIL! is planning to release a DVD that will capture the band’s entire history and spotlight all of its live shows and special guests and contain exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from its travels, rehearsals, soundchecks, interviews, meet-and-greets.
