Exciter have recruited guitarist Daniel Dekay (Diemonds) as a full time member to the team. Last month, founding guitarist John Ricci decided to part ways from the group as the band have been scrambling for the right replacement ever since. Nearly one month later, they decided Dekay is the right fit as he’s also been a longtime friend of the Exciter family. Additionally, these Canadian thrashers have revealed they’ve been working on new music and have plans for a new album.
The group issued the following statement:
“With the departure of founding guitarist John Ricci, Canadian speed legends EXCITER are hyped to reveal that Daniel Dekay (Diemonds, BangerTV) will be taking the position as the new guitarist for the band. A longtime friend of the EXCITER family, Dekay was a natural choice and a perfect fit to keep this thrash machine pounding. Dekay joins forces with original members Dan Beehler & Allan Johnson to round out this lineup of the band which is already working on new tunes with plans for a full length studio record. Stay tuned – much more to come for you maniacs!”
