Welsh hardcore outfit Brutality Will Prevail have revealed today that they have parted ways with their now former vocalist, Ajay Jones. The band will be continuing on with their new permanent frontman, Louis Gauthier, of Breaking Point. A full statement posted by the band on their Facebook page can be read below:
“As a new year begins, BWP has come to the end of an era, but also the beginning of an exciting new chapter.
To get straight to the point, due to personal commitments and his interests outside of the band, Ajay is no longer able to commit himself to BWP, and our increased touring schedule for the year ahead.
The remaining four of us are in this band to make music that we love, to play shows in as many places around the world as possible – for no other reason than because we love our music and we love playing shows.
Unfortunately, a full-time commitment is not something that Ajay wants, and therefore the time has come for us to part ways. We would like to take this moment to thank Ajay for all he has done as part of BWP over the years, and to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
We’re sure you are all wondering who will be filling Ajay’s shoes… Well, we are stoked to reveal that our good friend and long time collaborator Louis Gauthier, known to many of you as frontman of Breaking Point, will be stepping up as the new BWP vocalist.
Some of you will have already seen Louis on frontman duties for us during selected dates on the Terror tour, and anyone that caught these shows, or that has ever seen Breaking Point live, knows that Louis is the real deal.
We are happy to welcome him into the fold, and we hope that you will all be supportive of this new chapter in our band.
In the coming weeks we will be announcing tours in Europe, Japan, Australia and SE Asia, as well as a selection of festival appearances. We are also working on US touring, so there’s loads coming up and we can’t wait to get going!
Ash, Nick, Jordan, Marc & Louis”
