DÉTENTE have announce the addition of Tiina Teal as the band’s new vocalist. Here’s the offcial statement from the band: "Originally starting out behind the kit as a drummer, Tiina has been singing and screaming for the last 10 years. Having influences ranging from Jarboe to Nina Simone as well as Strapping Young Lad’s Devin Townsend, she’s collaborated with various musicians and bands in Los Angeles and won ‘Best Anti-War Band’ with her metal group, Burn The Empire. We have already put down 4 of the 9 new tracks with her and can tell you that both old and new supporters of the band will be blown away by her and the new tracks. Check back at www.detenterna.com and www.myspace.com/detenterna in the next few weeks for a sneak preview. "Decline" is coming along very well, taking longer than expected but it will be worth it; we should have an official street date announcement mid December. We want to thank Ann Boleyn for her help with the DÉTENTE reunion shows; it was great working with her and we wish her the best in everything she does."
