INXS hire new lead vocalist

INXS have announced the appointment of a new lead vocalist.

Ciaran Gribbin is now the band’s official singer/frontman, replacing JD Fortune who was fired for a second time last year.

Gribbin met INXS keyboard player/songwriter at a party two years ago, and has already recorded new demos with the band.

Farriss does not have “a master plan” regarding the band’s future, who have appeared somewhat unstable since the death of Michael Hutchence in 1997, but live shows are definite, with the band taking to the road this coming November.

INXS’s best loved album, ‘Kick’ (released in 1987) ┬áhas now been certified 6x platinum.
