Metal Kaoz recently conducted an interview with guitarist Kiko Loureiro (ANGRA) who talked about his new solo album, Sounds Of Innocence and his touring plans, revealing that Angra's current singer is Fabio Leone (VISION DIVINE, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, KAMELOT), with whom Angra will tour Brazil. An excerpt from the interview follows:
Q: Two years ago Angra had a legal dispute with the band PARANGOLÉ, so how this was resolved?
A: "You know how fast legal disputes can be. Nothing really happened because the blame was on the guitarist and not on the management... we’re still waiting to see."
Q: And talking about Angra, what is the current status of the band? Edu Falaschi left the lineup but he did not announce the reasons; can you shed some light on this issue?
A: "We're playing some shows with Fabio Lione from Italy; great singer."
Q: Is Angra searching for a singer? Can we expect a new album or even a tour?
A: "We have Fabio now. We will tour with him in Brazil and then continue the search for a Brazilian singer."

In a recent interview with Lokaos Rock Show (see below), members of Angra issue an offer to reunite with original singer Andres Matos (ex-SHAAMAN) for a 20th anniversary concert, recreating their Angels Cry debut. Previously, the singer has stated he has no interest in any such performance, but apparently there is now some major promotional money behind the effort. Time will tell.
