Westfield Massacre Welcome New Vocalist Seann Nicols (Ex-Quiet Riot, Etc.), Announce U.S. Tour

Westfield Massacre have announced the addition of vocalist Seann Nicols (ex-Quiet Riot, etc.) to their lineup. He will be taking over for Tommy Vext, who recently joined Bad Wolves.

Westfield Massacre commented:

“We are committed to fulfilling all obligations and promises we’ve made to our fans. We have secured the legal right to perform and do business as Westfield Massacre. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy for our fans to understand the internal workings of a band. We appreciate all of our fans support as we move forward and are anxious to deliver our record and get back on the road.”

Vext previously said that his departure was going to be amicable, but that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore with him posting the following:

“So my social media accounts have all been hacked and I’ve been blocked from #WestfieldMassacre’s pages and deleted from all the photos 😂

Looks like I’ll be leaking the new record on my private page in the next 48 hours.

Tag a friend who paid for the Kickstarter below to get the downloadable link as soon as it’s up
Vive la libération ! 🇫🇷🙈😂”
