SANCTUARY Recruits WITHERFALL Vocalist For Farewell Tour After Warrel Dane's Passing

R.I.P. Warrel Dane.

R.I.P. Warrel Dane.

Iced Earth announced a North American tour with Sanctuary back in November 2017 for this February and March. Unfortunately, vocalist Warrel Dane has since passed away, but Sanctuary will soldier on for one last trek. Sanctuary has recruited Witherfall vocalist Joseph Michael for the tour, and guitarist Lenny Rutledge says this will also be the band's farewell to the world.

"Sanctuary has decided to continue on with the Iced Earth tour to pay tribute to our brother Warrel Dane. We have enlisted the help of our friend Joseph Michael from Witherfall. The set will consist of many old and some newer songs performed with the utmost respect and quality to honor our friend. Please join us in this farewell as we celebrate Warrel’s musical legacy with Sanctuary. We look forward to sharing this tribute with all of you."
