Drummer Byron McMackin and his fellow punkrockers, collectively known as Pennywise, have announced that Ignite\'s Zoli Teglas is the band\'s new and permanent lead singer.
After months of searching, the members of Pennywise announced that Ignite vocalist Zoli Teglas is now officially the new front man.
Zoli, a longtime friend and tour mate, recently played a handful of So Cal shows with Pennywise.
These gigs included the 2009 Smokeout Festival and a sold out Holiday Benefit concert for Amnesty International at Long Beach Arena.
Zoli Teglas will join Pennywise on their upcoming European tour which kicks off this April.
After the sudden departure of former singer Jim Lindberg, a member of Pennywise for 19 years, guitarist Fletcher Dragge called Teglas a “natural choice” to take over vocal duties for the band.
Formed in 1988 in Hermosa Beach, California, Pennywise has released nine full-length studio albums, one live album, two ep\'s and one dvd. Their most recent studio effort, \'Reason to Believe\', was released to over 500,000 fans for free through a limited offering from MySpace Records.
