September 30th, 2010
by EvilG

BONDED BY BLOOD have announced that MAURO GONZALES from MUTANTS OF WAR will front the band on all 2010 North American tour dates following the departure of JOSE BARRALES, who has left the band to pursue a new career path. The band has given a brief statement on the situation:

“After 5 long years of hard work and dedication our vocalist and friend Jose Barrales has decided to part ways with the band due to personal and financial reasons. We all wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors! We have, however, moved forward and found a great replacement for the upcoming tours. He is a friend, fan and a great singer named Mauro Gonzalez from local band Mutants of War. We have been rehearsing with Mauro non-stop for the upcoming 2010 calendar and can’t wait to hit the road!  Refreshed and recharged Bonded By Blood is ready to crush your face in like never before! Be sure to catch us all at our upcoming tour dates with Early Man/Evile and Overkill/Forbidden/Gama Bomb!”

BONDED BY BLOOD
‘s North American tour – which starts September 30th in Tulsa, Oklahoma – will go ahead as planned with the newly recruited frontman.

Departing singer JOSE BARRALES comments:

“Since BBB is leaving on tour today, I’ve decided to let you all know that I have left the band.  It was one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in a very long time and it crushes me to do so, but I just couldn’t continue any longer.

“For the past two to three years, I have been struggling with financial, personal, band and family problems that seemed to get even more chaotic as time went by. I don’t really want to go into detail on my personal reason on why I left the band; what I really want to say in this announcement is thank you – thank you to all the bands, fans and friends that helped me out on the road, thank you for believing in me and BBB, thank you for all the support.

“As for BBB, they will continue without me. For the past couple of weeks they have been rehearsing with a good friend of ours, Mauro Gonzales, from the band Mutants Of War. I only hope you guys treat him with the same respect you treated me.

“As for me, I will be around.  I will never leave the music world, but for now, I need to fix some problems of my own.  I hope you respect my decision and hope one day I can be on stage once again.  One last thank you to everyone at Earache: Dig, Dan, Ali, Talita, Al, Summer, Rich and Ant.  Ruben, Jerry, Juan and Alex: you guys will never be forgotten, best five years ever. Give them hell, fuckers!”
