Hades lead singer Alan Tecchio released the following statement regarding the lineup for the Hades set for the Headbangers Open Air Festival this summer, July 26-28 in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany. Alan said via his Facebook page:

“It is official, I now have a full band lined up for the Headbanger’s Open  Air festival in Germany this July… Since Hades cannot actually play,  we are billing the show as: “A Night Of Hades with Alan Tecchio &  Friends.”

“Headlining the Friday night show will be: Me-Vocals Kevin Bolembach-Bass (Non Fiction, Hades) Jack Frost-Guitar (Seven Witches, Savatage) Sean Tarr-Guitar (TNA) & Ron Lipnicki-Drums (Overkill, Hades).”

A few weeks ago, Hades guitarist and founder Dan Lorenzo issued a statement that he would not be able to perform at the festival and in turn some of the remaining members of the band also chose not to participate in the show as well.  Since the promoters had been advertising the show for many months, Alan wanted to honor their commitment and not disappoint the fans. The setlist will consist of music from the first two Hades albums Resisting Success and If At First You Don’t Succeed.
