Barren Earth Announces new lead singer



Barren Earth is excited to welcome Faroese native Jón Aldará as the band's new lead vocalist. The band has been busy fine-tuning and demoing songs for it's third full-length album which it plans to start recording during spring 2014.


"As a fan of Barren Earth from the very beginning, I had no doubts about showing my interest in the singer position. And now that things have started rolling and I've had some time to look at the new material, I'm extremely excited to be part of the band's future. Now let's rock!" says Jón Aldárá.

"Jón is a friend with a strong voice that simply is no less than a perfect fit for our material - old and new. I was grinning like crazy as we ran through a handful of new songs at our first rehearsal with him after sending demos back and forth over email the past couple of months, everything was just sounding so good. There's just no way to put this without sounding cliched as hell but his contribution to the new material has indeed already taken the sound of the band to a new level. Can't wait to hit the stage and the studio!" comments Janne Perttilä.

Jón Aldará - lead vocals
