Are you sitting down? Please, please sit down for some completely unexpected, Earth-shattering news. Vocalist Tommy Vext has left the re-united Snot after touring and recording with the band since last August. This comes on the heels of a well-documented, hyper-dramatic split from Dino Cazares’ Divine Heresy last May. Snot Guitarist Mikey Doling issued a statement on the matter:
SNOT is again looking for a vocalist. Unfortunately, Tommy Vext [a.k.a. Tommy Cummings; ex-DIVINE HERESY] has not worked out. Tommy’s a great guy and he is very talented, but after writing for the last five months, there has been a lot of strain on relationships within the band, resulting in the departure of Sonny Mayo [guitar] and Tommy Vext. We wish the both of them the best of luck.
It’s amazing how conflict follows this guy everywhere. Suffice it to say, it’s safe to assume this won’t be the last we hear of it. Sometimes your reputation precedes you, but I’ve met Tommy countless times, and I’ve always thought he’s such a nice guy, very gracious. Seriously, he’s always been a good dude with me. Please don’t beat me up.
