The Australian Metallers of Pegazus have just announced some very special news concerning the touring line-up for the upcoming shows for the 'In Metal We Trust' tour.

Due to the fact that both Ange Sotiro (Drums) and Cory Betts (Bass) will not be available for touring duties because of serious working-related issues, the band have asked two well-known names from the past to join the band for the upcoming shows in Melbourne and Europe!

Article continues below...

   


Ange Sotiro will be replaced by no one other than co-founder of Pegazus and former drummer Robbie Stoj. Johnny and Robbie Stoj created Pegazus in 1993 and Robbie was the drummer from it's beginning till 2003, when he had to unfortunately leave the band due to a serious hand injury.

In the past few months he has felt very comfortable and back into the groove of being back behind the drum-kit again and will now replace Ange for the upcoming shows. Robbie Stoj comments on the recent events: "Looking forward to getting back to Europe, seeing old and new friends and fans. Great to be back touring, especially with Pegazus. This line up has got a lot to be seen to be believed. These will be really great shows."

And the surprises will continue as Cory Betts will be replaced on bass by the former Pegazus vocalist Rob Thompson! After Rob left the band in 2008, he always stayed in close contact with his former band-mates. The band knew that Rob is a great guitarist and bass-player as well, so without any doubts he was asked to replace Cory Betts for the tour.

Rob Thompson about his return for the upcoming shows: "When I was asked if I was interested to do these shows with Pegazus as their bass player, it was a no-brainer for me. I have always loved the band and it makes no difference to me if I'm the lead singer or the bass player. Being on stage with those four guys is all that matters and it's a unique opportunity which I never thought would happen. The rehearsals so far have shown already that this line-up is gonna kick some ass and you'd better not miss this!"

It has taken the band 13 years to finally return to Europe and the excitement is overwhelming. Founder and guitarist Johnny Stoj comments on the tour and the two guest-appearances from Robbie Stoj and Rob Thompson: "It's definitely been a long time coming and I can't wait to finally be back in Europe rippin' it up on stage with the boys. Having both Robbie and Rob on this tour is going to be a BLAST!"

Also vocalist Justin Fleming is thrilled with all the recent happenings: "I'm really pumped to go to Europe and destroy some PA's over there. I hope the fans will not miss the opportunity to see this very special line-up. For Rob and myself, it will be the first time to hit the stages in Europe and being able to do that with this line-up will be an experience none of us will ever forget."

The band has confirmed the following dates for the "IN METAL WE TRUST" TOUR:

Oct 14, 2011 Central Club Melbourne, Australia
Oct 22, 2011 Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival – Manifesto Hoorn, Holland
Oct 28, 2011 De Rots Antwerp, Belgium
