Landmine Marathon have waved goodbye to their enigmatic vocalist Grace Perry (on good terms!) and have welcomed the shredded throat of Krysta Martinez to the front position. The frontwoman, also of Portland's Transient, has already laid down vocals for the track "Dead Horses" from their recent Gallows and you can check that out below.
The band issued the following statement regarding Perry's departure and the arrival of Martine on lead throat:
"This summer, Grace decided to leave the band to pursue non-musical endeavors. We are grateful for all of her contributions to LANDMINE MARATHON and wish her nothing but future successes."
Martinez offered the following regarding her recruitment
"I'm stoked to be creating music with Landmine Marathon and look forward to hitting the road with them in coming months. Grace is an amazing vocalist, and filling her shoes is a great challenge. Things have been incredibly enjoyable so far and the best is surely yet to come."
Godspeed to Martinez, see you on the road.
Check out the revamped "Dead Horses" below, along with the original, plus a couple Transient streams as well.

I have a feeling that's not it. But still, this blows, although Krysta doesn't sound bad on the rerecording of Dead Horses.

It just wasn't feasible for her to keep touring and have our marriage still work. Sorry, guys.

Anyone else here seen Transient? I saw em at two house shows. Very fuckin energetic Grindcore. Krystal actually gave me a free CD. I always wanted to see a Landmine/Transient show but I was not expecting this. Bummed I only saw Landmine once but this will be cool.

The best part was that Grace had emailed me saying that she knew I was under 21 so she was going to have me come down, do the interview, chill with them on their bus, then sneak me into the show.

Their first show with Krysta will be on December 5 in Scottsdale, AZ. Sorrower will be playing, along with Seas Will Rise, Biocidio, and the Order. Looking forward to it. Hung out with Grace, Ryan, Matt, and Dylan at Converge the other night and everyone is definitely still on good terms. Grace was just tired of touring and how it affected her personal life. Dylan told me months ago that Krysta was gonna be the new singer, and I can't think of a better person for the job. Looking forward to the show!
