Dark Angel Reunion: Hoglan In, Doty Out
There has been more fucking drama around this Dark Angel reunion than there was when Black Sabbath regrouped, I feel.
Dark Angel have released the following statement: “Due to the recent rumor-inducing statements made by estranged ex-Dark Angel singer Don Doty, the band is forced to offer a premature release of information.”
Here it comes: “Dark Angel will reform for a limited number of appearances in 2014 in the U.S. and select festivals in Europe.
“These dates are still pending and have not yet been booked at this time.” I bet one is Maryland Deathfest.
“The confirmed lineup for these rare and unique, select 2014 shows features Gene Hoglan (drums), Jim Durkin (guitar), Ron Rinehart (vocals) and Michael Gonzalez (bass).
“The lack of responsibility that Don Doty is displaying by posting false information and unfounded rumors is creating confusion for Dark Angel fans. There is no ‘Team Don Doty’ or ‘Team Ron Rinehart.’ There is ONLY Dark Angel. We will not be a part of anything that damages this band and its reputation.
“All future official statements will come from Dark Angel’s management.”
