Power metallers Angra to do reality TV auditions for new frontman

By on 9 October 2012

Brazilian power metallers Angra are seeking a new singer but want to hunt one down a little differently. “We’re planning to do a TV show with guys that want to be in Angra,” reveals founding member and guitarist Rafael Bittencourt. “I want them to speak to the crowd, I want the crowd to be judging these guys.”

He continues: “We’re not only looking for a great singer, we’re looking for a creative person.”

Angra wouldn’t be the first band to turn the hunt for a member into a reality TV affair. Prog metal superstars Dream Theater filmed a series of episodes for their YouTube channel for a new drummer following the departure of Mike Portnoy in 2010.

The band’s brand new compilation album ‘Best Reached Horizons’ will be released on SPV/Steamhammer on October 29.

Stay tuned for more news on Angra.
