INXS Unveil New Singer
2011-09-27 by Davey Boy STAFF | 21 Comments

INXS have unveiled their new lead vocalist to replace American reality show winner JD Fortune. This time, the veteran Australian band have looked to Belfast - Northern Ireland for their frontman, with the gig going to Ciaran Gribbin.

A singer & songwriter, Gribbin has worked with the likes of Madonna, Snow Patrol & Groove Armada, as well as working on music for movies such 'Killing Bono', 'Heartless' and 'Wild Target'.

"Without a doubt I was a fan of INXS" he told Billboard.com. "I remember 'Kick' like it was yesterday. I remember seeing the guys on MTV and then on Jools Holland's BBC show watching as a kid, just blown away by them. INXS definitely played a huge part in my musical education as a songwriter and something I aspired to, so to be in the band now is pretty amazing".

Gribbin is set to hit the road with INXS for a six-show run through South America, Europe and Australia in November.

High five for autoeroticasphyxiation jokes Porch.

This band should have ended when Michael Hutchence died. They aren't even in the same realm of music anymore as the band they used to be. Should rename themselves "Generic VH1 Hard Rock Band for Aging 80s hair metal fans #9002", would be a more apt description.

True, but they did have a few good albums in the 80s and a few really good singles. "Don't Change" is a killer little song.

I can't wait to see them on tour with 'Generic VH1 Hard Rock Band for Aging 80s hair metal fans
#4562'. I head they are using 2 original members instead of 1 this year!!!
