The legends of N.W.O.B.H.M. Tokyo Blade announced the official return of not one, but two vocalists who have formed part of the band’s lineup in previous years. Vick Wright (1984-1985) and Chris Gillen (2008-2010) will rejoin the four original members Andy Boulton, Steve Pierce, John Wiggins and Andy Wrighton and perform alternate live shows depending on where in the world the band is playing.
Guitarist and founder member Andy Boulton explains:
“Firstly can I say that individually Chris and Vick are two of the best vocalists I’ve ever played with and two of the finest voices in rock full stop. It’s been a pleasure to work with Chris again recently, and now to have Vick available to reunite a ‘classic’ lineup for the band is great for us and particularly the fans. Night Of The Blade is such a classic album and holds a place in everyone’s heart so to be able to perform those songs again with Vick will be very special.”
Live dates in 2016 have been announced in Spain, Holland, Belgium, France & Germany with more to follow. South American shows will take in Mexico, Brazil and Columbia with final dates to be confirmed soon.
