STOP THE PRESS: TURBONEGRO BRING ON OLD FAN AS NEW SINGER !!!

Norwegian "Despots of Deathpunk" Turbonegro have called upon old friend, legendary Londoner and former Dukes Of Nothing frontman Tony Sylvester (38) to step in as their new vocalist.

Tony Sylvester cuts a formidable figure. A longtime stalwart of the British hardcore punk scene and music industry veteran, he was the President of the London chapter of the Turbojugend fan club and has previously worked with the band as their UK press officer.

Tony is a connoisseur of the finer things in life, especially music of all genres and 19th century English literature, in addition to being a part time plus-size model (for amongst others Burberry) and member of the men's fashion editorial staff at GQ Style magazine.

Turbonegro has been on a 2 year hiatus since the split with former vocalist Hans Erik "Hank Von Helvete" Dyvik Husby in 2009, after his decision to pursue a career in acting, the Church of Scientology and goth rock.

Sylvester will perform his first show as a Turbonegro at the Turbojugend World Days in Hamburg, Germany on July 15th.

Lead guitarist Euroboy: " Well into the second song we played with Tony, I stopped thinking this was an audition - it was just a great sound! We ran through a bunch of songs and had a lot of fun, he knew all of them! Tony pulled off the songs with a raw yet elegant attitude to his performance that makes him an obvious choice as the new singer of our band. We had a list with a few other names on, which we ripped in two and left on the floor of our rehearsal place."

Bass player Happy-Tom:
"Tony is the fan who we in turn became fans of early on, before becoming close friends. He has the powerful, soulful voice and the presence we have always been looking for in a singer and we are STOKED to have this magical gentleman or gentle THUG aboard!"

International President of the Turbojugend Fan Club (currently 3.023 chapters strong!), Juergen Goldschmitt:
"During the last decade Tony - AKA Chapter President Ceasar Proud of one of the oldest, most active chapters - earned a lot of respect for organizing the legendary near-disasterous Thames-boat show with Turbonegro (nearly wiping out a major part of the British music press), drinking MUCH backstage beer and much, much more. There is not a single doubt that global Turbojugend will support and love him for joining the Alpha Denim Recruits and bringing back to us what we so utterly missed: the Denim, the Darkness and the Deathpunk!"

Tony Sylvester himself:
"I was incredibly honoured to get the call up and blown away by the way the sound came together so quickly. It's going to be different for sure - there's a little more filth in my pipes, but as a longtime jugend, I want to assure the Turbojugend that the legacy is in safe hands."

The new line-up are already working on songs for a new album.
