Kings of Dust to search for new singer around Phoenix area while Michael Beck to continue elsewhere
The reasons for the split between Arizona, USA based Kings of Dust and founding member / lead vocalist Michael Beck have yet to be publicized but both sides are looking to move on without the other. Kings of Dust‘s remaining members consist of bassist Greg Chaisson (Badlands, Red Dragon Cartel), guitarist Ryan McKay and drummer Jimi Taft. Chaisson and Beck have a lot of history together as Chaisson assisted in recruiting Beck to temporarily replace Darren James Smith as the lead vocalist in Red Dragon Cartel back in or about March 2015.
Beck posted the following message on his Facebook page yesterday:
“Well friends, the rumors are true. I have parted ways as the vocalist for Kings of Dust. I’m very proud of that record and the friends I made because of it. I look forward to continuing this musical adventure elsewhere. Look forward to seeing you all soon!”
Chaisson on the other hand posted the following message on his Facebook account earlier today:
