Xentrix - To Be Rejoined By Chris Astley For European Tour

British thrash metal legends Xentrix have announced that their original singer and guitarist Chris Astley will rejoin the band for their upcoming European tour with Vio-Lence, Whiplash and Artillery. He will filling in for his replacement Jay Walsh who has a child due this November, the same month the tour happens and the band releases their new album Seven Words.

Walsh himself said: "It's much appreciated that Chris is up for covering these dates for us. It's a great tour, the guys will have a great time on it and I wouldn't really want the job dropped in anyone else's hands. It;s also an opportunity for Xentrix fans to see the band with Chris up front again so get tickets sorted now!! - It's funny how news comes that Phil Demmel steps off the tour and now Astley steps in...."

Guitarist Kristian Havard chimed in: “It's great news that Jay and his partner Louise are expecting another baby and we couldn't be happier for them both, it's always 'Family First' in this band. But after a time of so many cancellations, we wanted to try and find a way to still do the tour, so we were relieved that Chris agreed to step in and help us play the Headbangers Ball dates."
