Bestinau got that-
VIOLENCE singer Sean Killian spoke to George Dionne from KNAC.COM about VIOLENCE/ex-MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel‘s recent revelation that he has some of VIOLENCEupcoming gigs due to his touring commitments with other projects. Killian said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET†[Phil has] asked by LAMB OF GOD to be able to intervene for them because some of the guys in the band aren’t going to do the vaxx,” referring to the COVID-19 vaccine, “so if there are countries that are still closed against the time she go out, he will go out. But we already have a solid backup ready to go. And he is someone many people know; I just don’t want to say who it is. You don’t want to bring it out and then not let it happen. But if Philoisn’t there [at some of the VIO-LENCE shows], the man who will be there is as good as Phil is on the axe. He’s a shredder. And everyone knows him, so if I told you, you’d know right away.”
Demmel filled in for LAMB OF GOD guitarist Willie Adler during the band’s January performance at the Ship Rocked cruise. Philo also toured the US in March with OVERKILL as a temporary replacement for Dave Linsky†
last August, Killian revealed he was hospitalized with COVID-19 after his lung capacity was compromised. But he later defended his own decision not to take the coronavirus vaccine, saying that “for him it’s about freedom”. The 57-year-old musician, who battled stage four liver cirrhosis five years ago, said: “I am a free man. I am within. My freedom comes from within, not someone else’s. No one defines my freedom. So, don’t kick on my freedom – that’s all. And don’t step on other people’s [freedom]… My business is not anyone else’s business. As I said, my freedom is within. I decide – nobody else.”
Last month, VIOLENCE released a new EP, “Let the World Burn”through Metal Blade Records† The collection of five songs, VIOLENCE‘s first original release since 1993 “Nothing to Gain”was followed on Trident Studios in Pacheco, California by Juan Urteaga †MACHINE HEAD† EXODUS), mixed by di Madsen †DARK REST† HEAVEN WILL BURNING) and mastered by Ted Jensen †ALICE IN CHAINS† DEATH ANGEL†
