DIVINITY Announce Addition Of Second Guitarist; Fall Alberta Tour Announced
September 12, 2017, 10 days ago
Divinity has announced the addition of 2nd guitarist Gord Olson to their line-up. Olson is a dedicated and talented 7-string shredder who is endorsed by Schecter Guitars and is also currently active in numerous projects such as Calgary act Ye Goat-Herd Gods and Demisery, a death metal collaboration with Keith Merrow of Alluvial and Conquering Dystopia (Jeff Loomis).
Divinity vocalist Sean Jenkins comments:
“The band had originally asked Gord to join the band about four years ago, but timing and commitment didn't work out. Recently, about 2 months ago, Gord was hanging out at a jam session and by the end of it we all sort of realized that the opportunity for Gord to learn some songs and start jamming was now possible. Gord really took bull by the horns and has learned a 10-song live set in a matter of just weeks… and he’s nailing it; really adding another huge layer of thickness and some killer leads too! We couldn't be more stoked to have dual guitarists again!”
Divinity will be embarking on a dual album release Alberta tour with Vancouver, BC’s Expain. The tour will be in promotion of Divinity's latest album The Immortalist along with Expain supporting their forthcoming EP Pinching Nerves.
