OLD WOUNDS Vocalist Quits To Become More Career Focused

Posted by on December 8, 2016 at 10:11 am

In 2017, the world will be getting a new Old Wounds album. The bad news is that vocalist Kevin Iavaroni will not be the frontman for the album, as he has announced via Instagram that he is exiting the band to focus on his career as a barber.

I guess the silver lining there is that Iavaroni also says he's not 100% done with punk and hardcore, so we'll still get to hear him on whatever else he's got planned. No word on who his replacement is just yet.

“A time and place, and a million friendships. I’m sure some have heard that my time singing for old wounds is coming to an end. Nothing is sacred, and nothing lasts forever. I’ve decided it’s my time to leave the group and focus on my career as a barber. I’m not giving up on punk and hardcore, I’ve got a few things in the works that can hopefully take shape soon and 100 things I still have to say.

Thanks to all the bands that have shared the stage with us and I’ve grown to love.Thanks to anyone who has supported us while my version of the band existed. Thanks to anyone who put us up and gave us a place to stay. Thanks to anyone who permanently carved lyrics I wrote into there bodies. Thanks to anyone who came to a show and supported us in anyway.

Honorable mention to Dave Kent, Don and Larry for putting up with with our bullshit and giving up your lives for however long to road dog with us. I will NOT be playing any last shows, and will NOT be doing any of the January shows. See you in the funny papers.”
