Former SOIL and DIRGE WITHIN guitarist Shaun Glass has joined forces with STUCK MOJO frontman Robby J. Fonts in a new band called REPENTANCE.
Joining Fonts and Glass in the group are guitarist Markus Johnsson, drummer Kanky Lora and bassist Mike Sylvester.
"REPENTANCE came together very naturally, which was a very cleansing experience," states Glass. "At this point in my life, I was hoping to start working and creating new music with an almost entirely new group of people, and this crew organically locked into place."
It's crazy how things happen," comments Fonts. "I was looking to start a new band since Rich[Ward] and Frank [Fontsere] are currently busy outside of STUCK MOJO [touring with FOZZY], so the timing for REPENTANCE came perfectly.
It was NONPOINT's drummer, Robb Rivera, that introduced me to Shaun. One phone call later, we were stoked to get this show on the road. Shaun sent me demos, I wrote lyrics and vocals and our songs started coming together quickly."
"You know you're on to something special when everyone connects instantly and the creativity keeps on flowing," says Fonts. "I think fans of our previous work will be in for a pleasant surprise… this band's sound is HEAVY. Get ready for REPENTANCE!"
