Northlane return with new singer

Following a public audition that saw nearly 2000 hopefuls apply to front Northlane, Marcus Bridge came out on top and new single Rot is the first official release.

Northlane released an official statement following the appointment of Marcus that said “We vowed to find the most unique talent we could, and someone that could help us expand on our sound. Northlane has always been about progression, and we saw our situation as an opportunity. This was never going to be easy, but we took a leap of faith and made the only decision that felt right. And we feel the results will show you just how good our music can be.”

Bridge now has the task of a mammoth 21-show tour across Europe supporting metalcore powerhouse Parkway Drive at the following cities:
