In an interesting turn of events, it turns out The Contortionist vocalist Mike Lessard will be joining Volumes on their upcoming European tour with Northlane, The Acacia Strain, and Hellions. This will be in replacement of Michael Barr.
The band announced this with the following statement:
“As some of you may already know..we are sad to say that one of our vocalists, Michael Barr, was unable to join us on this European tour with Northlane. After much discussion and consideration, it was decided to have him stay home to work on the upcoming album and further the creative process.
Fortunately we were lucky enough to find an excellent replacement in our friend, Michael Lessard, vocalist of The Contortionist. We thank him for taking time out of his busy scheduled to join us on the road for this great tour. To all our European/UK fans and friends—come see us at the show!! #VTEAM”
Additionally, Barr left the following tweet:
I know this doesn’t make sense, but it all will soon
