Hooded Menace has re-signed to Season Of Mist and is working on the follow-up to their 2021 album The Tritonus Bell. Alongside that announcement comes the news that Hooded Menace has parted ways with guitarist Teemu Hannonen, and will carry on as a three-piece in the studio.
"We're looking forward to work with Season of Mist for more Hooded Menace music!" said the band in a statement. "This is the first time for us to re-sign to any label, so that says a lot, I suppose. Since we are not playing live anymore, but went back to being a 'studio band' only – just like Hooded Menace was meant to be in the beginning – we've decided to part ways with Teemu Hannonen (rhythm guitar) in good spirits and continue as a three-piece."
Hannonen played with Hooded Menace between 2012 and 2023, making his debut with the band in 2014 on the Labyrinth Of Carrion Breeze EP.
