Following our previous news that IMPELLITTERI are to headline the Busan International Rock Festival in Korea , guitarist Chris Impellitteri has made a further announcement:
Drummer Jon Dette will be joining IMPELLITTERI for the Headlining Shows in South Korea next month!
As we announced a few days ago IMPELLITTERI have agreed to be the Headlining act at the Busan International Rock Festival on Saturday August 9, 2014. The band will also play a show at VHALL in Seoul Korea on Sunday August 10th. The band will then head into the studio to record a brand new Album. Here is a link to the Busan Festival: http://www.rockfestival.co.kr/KOR/Rock/main.asp
Regarding Jon Dette: As many of you know Jon Dette plays with me in the band “ANIMETAL USA” alongside bassist Rudy Sarzo and Vocalist Mike Vescera! Jon has also played for the bands Slayer, Iced Earth, and recently toured with Anthrax as a fill in for Charlie. Jon is an absolutely amazing drummer and we are honored to have him join our fold for this adventure.
Also, the great Glen Sobel who has played Drums on all of the past 5 IMPELLITTERI records and tours is currently playing drums for Alice Cooper on the Motley Crue tour and could not join us. So, we will miss Glen and will be in good hands with Jon….
