Kill Devil Hill announced Type O Negative's Johnny Kelly as the band's new drummer. Kelly, who also plays with Danzig and his own band A Pale Horse Named Death, replaces the recently departed Vinny Appice.

"I'm really excited about coming on board with Kill Devil Hill," Kelly says. "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!"

Kill Devil Hill bassist Rex Brown adds, "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!"

"It's been a great musical adventure from the beginning, but the time has now come to go our separate ways and continue to make music that we love," says Appice of his decision to leave the band.
