Doom Pioneers Pentagram, led by the ghost like vocalist and founding member Bobby Liebling, will be hitting the grim shores of Blighty for their first ever UK Tour at the end of the month and will be playing the classic album 'Relentless' in it's entirety.
Victor Griffin has announced that he will be vacating his duties within the band at the end of this tour.

"For now, it's time to move on with my new band's album and tour plans for 2013," stated Griffin in the announcement. So far, there has been no word on who will take his place.
Pentagram have gone through a number of line-up changes through their 41 year existence, with Griffin occupying the guitar spot roughly four times since 1979, being just one of the band's ten guitar players. In addition to 'Relentless', Griffin can be heard on such gems as 'Day Of Reckoning', 'Be Forewarned', and 2010s 'Last Rites'.
