Guitarist replaces Frank Carter as frontman of Watford punks
The Watford punks have chosen MacNeil after former frontman Frank Carter announced he was quitting the band last month. He has since formed a new outfit Pure Love and is working on new material.
MacNeil told Alternative Press of the decision:
After the boys decided they were going to keep going, my name kind of popped up, and they all thought it made sense. It didn’t overcomplicate itself. I talked to Steph [Carter, guitarist], and I said I was definitely interested. He pretty much said, ‘Okay, let’s do it,’ and I got on a plane and we’re writing right now.
The band are currently recording new material for their third studio album and have their first live commitments booked for the autumn, when they support Four Year Strong across North America.
