Hour Of 13 Announce New Singer
North Carolina doom metallers Hour of 13 introduced veteran singer Ben Hogg (Birds of Prey, Beaten Back to Pure) into the fold this past Saturday night in New York City. He and the band played a set to a packed crowd to celebrate the band's recent reissue of The Ritualist. Expect more widespread touring from Hour of 13 this year. Hogg replaced singer Phil Swanson, who left the band because he had tired of touring.
Guitarist and founder Chad Davis comments: "Hour of 13 could not be more pleased with the dedication and amount of work Ben has shown. He is a valuable talent to have in the band. He is a vital presence that we were needing in the fold and thanks to him, we are stronger and more focused than ever."
Shortly before the band's NYC appearance, they recorded Ben Hogg singing to some of their songs during a rehearsal session. Listen to three exclusive tracks here.
