Vinny Appice is out, and stepping in is Type O Negative, Danzig, and A Pale Horse Named Death drummer Johnny Kelly.

“I’m really excited about coming on board with Kill Devil Hill,” says Kelly.

“I’ve been a fan since their debut and have known the guys for a long-time. It’s also clear that I have some really big shoes to fill. I’m ready for that challenge as I prepare for KDH’s next chapter — this is gonna be a blast!”

“We all have a lot of love and respect for Vinny and have been honored to have jammed with him over the last few years — we wish Vinny well with all his future endeavors, it has been a blast!”
