Power Quest reveal new vocalist and guitarist

Power Quest issued the following update regarding the line-up of the band:

Power Quest are pleased to announce that the new vocalist is Chitral “Chity” Somapala. Chity is well known and highly regarded worldwide in the rock and metal scene and has recorded, toured and made guest appearances with the likes of “Avalon”, “Faro”, “Firewind” and “Red Circuit”, as well as fronting his own band “Civilization One”.

His unmistakable style has been compared favourably with Ronnie James Dio, Klaus Meine and Johnny Gioeli. Power Quest main man Steve Williams commented on the news;

“I’m thrilled to have recruited a vocalist and front man of Chity’s calibre. I’ve known Chity for a couple of years and we have often talked about working together and now we have that opportunity. We have already recorded 3 new songs with him and they just sound immense.”

In addition to this news we are also pleased to welcome Gavin Owen into the band as the new guitarist. Previously Gav was the lead guitarist for Welsh Metallers “Triaxis”.

“Gav’s audition last weekend was of the highest standard and we were all very impressed by his playing and how he conducted himself throughout the process”, said Steve Williams. “There was an instant chemistry there between him and the rest of the guys and particularly with Andy which bodes well for the future.”

Meanwhile the band continues to work on material for the forthcoming album “Blood Alliance”, with recording scheduled to commence in early July. “
