Dukes Of Nothing's Tony Sylvester replaces Norwegian vocalist Hank Von Helvete

Turbonegro have announced the addition of British vocalist Tony Sylvester to their ranks.

Sylvester, who was previously the frontman of UK band Dukes Of Nothing as well as being Turbonegro‘s former UK press officer, has joined the Norwegian rockers as their new vocalist, replacing the departed Hank Von Helvete.

Speaking to Kerrang! Magazine, Turbonegro bassist Happy Tom stated: “Tony has the powerful, soulful voice and the presence we have always been looking for in a singer. We are stoked to have this magical gentleman or gentle thug aboard!”

Sylvester was also formerly the President of the London chapter of the Turbonegro Turbojugend fan club. “I was incredibly honoured to get the call up and blown away by the way the sound came together so quickly,” said Sylvester. “It’s going to be different for sure – there’s a little more filth in my pipes, but as a longtime [fan], I want to assure the Turbojugend that the legacy is in safe hands.”

Sylvester will make his Turbonegro debut in Hamburg, Germany on July 15.
