Breaking news: Canadian heavy metal band Skull Fist will use Brian Stephenson as a stand-in vocalist for Zach Slaughter during Asian tour.
Skull Fist vocalist Zach Slaughter has a problem with his voice and needs further surgery this summer. Brian Stephenson (Old James, ex-Annihilator) is the brother of former Skull Fist drummer Chris Stephenson (Old James, Cauldron, Enforcer). The Asian tour will take the band to India, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and Japan. Zach Slaughter will still be performing on Skull Fist’s Asian tour but focusing on playing guitar until his voice has been fully restored. Slaughter’s surgery will also mean that the planned studio album, the band’s third, will be further delayed.
