Pennywise have chosen Ignite vocalist Zoli Teglas as their new frontman. Plus, handful of dates and new material in the works.

South Bay punk pioneers Pennywise have announced that Zoli Teglas of Orange County's Ignite, is the band's new and permanent lead singer.

After months of searching, the members of Pennywise announced that Ignite vocalist Zoli Teglas is now officially the new frontman. Teglas, a longtime friend and tourmate, recently played a handful of SoCal shows with Pennywise, including the 2009 Smokeout Festival and a sold out Holiday Benefit concert for Amnesty International at Long Beach Arena.

Teglas will join Pennywise on their upcoming European tour which kicks off this April. That tour will be preceded by a few warm up West Coast dates that start on March 17 in San Diego, CA. Pennywise is currently at work on a new record, its first featuring the new lineup.

After the sudden departure of former singer Jim Lindberg, a member of Pennywise for 19 years, guitarist Fletcher Dragge called Teglas a "natural choice" to take over vocal duties for the band.
