South Carolina-based extreme metal band LECHEROUS NOCTURNE has parted ways with vocalist Jason Hohenstein. He tells BLABBERMOUTH.NETin a statement, “I was writing/arranging in preparation of the new record when I was asked to leave.”

He continues, “I felt it was time to issue a statement since nothing has officially been said.

“I DID NOT QUIT! I want to make that perfectly clear.

“Thanks to all the friends and fans for their support over the years.”

He adds, “Anyone looking for an experienced touring/session vocalist can contact me at [this] email address: Songofsleep@yahoo.com.”

LECHEROUS NOCTURNE‘s second album, “The Age of Miracles Has Passed”, was released in October 2008 via Unique Leader Records. Once again recorded at SoundLab Studio in Columbia, South Carolina, “The Age of Miracles Has Passed” was said to be “a refined yet diversified progression from 2006’s ‘Adoration of the Blade’.”
