Chris Gillen speaks about his new role in Tokyo Blade as one of the two vocalists who will perform live with the band.

Tokyo Blade recently announced that they will perform with two vocalists, Chris Gillen for shows in Canada and The Americas and the returning Vick Wright for classic ‘Night Of The Blade’ reunion shows in Europe.

Chris Gillen comments on this slightly unusual arrangement:

“I’m very honored to be able to continue to serve Tokyo Blade and their fans. The performances with the original lineup in Europe last year were truly a privilege. As a dedicated warrior fighting to help preserve the NWOBHM style, I will always step aside whenever original vocalists Alan Marsh or Vick Wright are able to perform and celebrate in Tokyo Blade’s glory.

As a member and a fan I want only what is best for the die hard fans as Tokyo Blade forges on, and I will do whatever I can to bring their historically amazing metal come to life whenever service calls. May the metal gods be with us all.”

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.
