HARAKIRI has begun auditioning replacements for singer Matt Reese, who left the band in January. The group has issued the following update:

"The search for a new vocalist is on. We've started the audition process. We have some good candidates for sure. We're hoping to wrap this up fairly soon so if anyone out there, who hasn't contacted us already, is still interested in trying out get with us asap. Or if you inquired about it but we didn't get back to you, message us again. Things were getting hectic there for a second and I am afraid some emails may have been missed.

We are steadily progressing on the writing of the songs for the new album (musically that is). We pretty much finished up another new one yesterday. We're anxious to get all this done and hit the studio and play some shows.

Anyway, we're alive and trying to push this forward as fast as we can. Once a vocalist is decided upon we'll throw up a demo track probably."
