In a recent interview with Revolver Magazine, Whitechapel guitarist Alex Wade revealed that clean vocals will be featured on the band’s new album.

“We all thought it was really cool how Randy [Blythe] from Lamb Of God wasn’t afraid to try some manly melodic vocals on their last record [VII: Sturm Und Drang],” he said.

“So Phil’s diving into that a little and seeing where it goes. He’s actually got a great singing voice.”

After fans became aware of the news, guitarist Zach Householder sent out a tweet that denied any clean vocals would appear on the record.

However, frontman Phil Bozeman sent out a tweet today that claimed two tracks on the record will have singing aspects to them.

The album is expected to be released later this year. Would you be opposed to hearing the band incorporate signing into their sound? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
