BREAKING: TRAVIS RICHTER OFFICIALLY OUT OF THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, CORELIA’S RYAN DEVLIN NAMED AS TOURING VOCALIST
Earlier this week, we reported a rumor that The Human Abstract have parted ways with vocalist Travis Richter, and replaced him with “an unknown kid from San Diego.” Now, Metal Insider has broken the news that Richter is indeed out of the band, and that said unknown kid from San Diego is named Ryan Devlin, and sings in a band called Corelia.
That’s crappy news, because, as Vince said earlier this week, Richter is “a rad dude, a talented vocalist, and seemed like a great fit personality-wise with the rest of the guys.” I also got to seem him perform with the band in May, and he was a killer front man, too.
But based on the one Corelia song I’ve heard — “Treetops” (below), featuring Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo and also originally posted by Metal Insider — Devlin sounds like he should be able to handle the job. I guess now all we can do is wait and see if he ends up being the permanent new singer for THA or what.
The Human Abstract’s tour with Periphery, Textures, and The Contortionist starts on September 2. Get dates here.
