After 12 years, The Angels have announced that Dave Gleeson will step down to make way for a brand-new lead singer.

Nick Norton, who has been playing drums with the band since 2011, will front the band.

“Nick is an incredible musician and a great singer and songwriter,” Angels founding member John Brewster said.

“He obviously knows the songs like the back of his hand and the fans already know and love him, so he’s the perfect fit. We can’t wait to hit the road.”

Gleeson’s final show with the band will be at the Gympie Muster on Sunday 27 August.
