Vocalist Eric "AK” Knutson of the legendary FLOTSAM AND JETSAM has joined Arizona's THE HUMAN CONDITION.
According to a band update, "The Human Condition performed a surprise five song set at the Nino Notaro Memorial Concert on February 20th at Club Stratus in Phoenix, Arizona. It had been a well kept secret that Wiley Arnett (SACRED REICH) and Knutson had joined forces.
Flotsam And Jetsam were scheduled to share a stage with Sacred Reich for the first time in nearly 18 years, about 1,500 of Arizona's core metal family members all came together to celebrate the life of Nino Notaro. For the unenlightened, Nino was an amazingly talented sound engineer that worked with both bands over the years. The event raised money for Nino's daughter Sophie to start an education fund. THC felt it would be cool to debut the new line up at this special event.
When THC initially took the stage metal heads in attendance seemed a bit confused to see Wiley strap on his guitar and Eric begin checking the mic. THC drummer Muley counted off three stick clicks and they were off, by the second song it was clear there was a new band out of Arizona to consider.
With the addition of Eric AK on vocals and Johnny Urwin on bass, THC has returned to the scene with renewed vigor. Anyone that witnessed the debut performance would agree that THC is fresh, relevant and rooted in a bit of metal history.
The band is busy writing and has added a sixth song to their set list since the show. Stay tuned humans, conditions have definitely gotten interesting.
