Wigan based hard rock band Bigfoot have replaced their lead singer after holding auditions over the summer. An official statement from the band reads:

After careful consideration and deliberation, we are incredibly excited to officially introduce you to our new lead vocalist, Sean Seabrook. We have been working very hard behind the scenes over the past few weeks to find the right person for this role and we are ready to push forward with Sean.

We are all feeling very positive and excited about this new phase together! All of our shows from September onwards will go ahead as planned and we hope that you can come and be a part of the next chapter for Bigfoot. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the vocalists that took the time to apply and wish all of them the best of luck in the future.

Seabrook himself states: “I would like to say thank you to the lads for allowing me to be a part of the family. I have been a fan of Bigfoot for some time and to now be a working part of the machine is a true honour. I can’t wait to see what I can bring to the band and what the future holds for us. I know I’m right in saying that we are all itching to get out on the road together. Personally, I can’t wait to take the stage fronting this band and meeting all the fans. See you all soon!”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
