L.A. hard rock veterans Great White have parted ways with Mitch Malloy after four years as their singer, and replacing him is none other than Last In Line frontman Andrew Freeman.

Malloy – who is most famous for trying out for Van Halen back in 1996, following their intial split with Sammy Hagar, but lost the gig to Gary Cherone of Extreme – joined Great White in 2018 as the replacement for of Terry Ilous of XYZ, who replaced the band’s original singer Jack Russell over a decade ago.

Great White guitarist Mark Kendall commented on the addition of Freeman via press release:

“Andrew brings another vocal perspective, a different grit in his delivery. We’re so proud of our past. We’re humbled that our fans have stood by us for all these years. Andrew being here now is the next chapter. We couldn’t be more excited for fans to hear him sing the hits and help us continue to forge ahead.”

Freeman simply commented:

“I’m absolutely honored to contribute to the Great White legacy. I’m fully aware of the history of this band and its brotherhood. Let’s rock.”

As noted by Blabbermouth, Malloy issued his own statement on social media, which reads as follows:

“Since I have the best fans ever, I want you to be the first to know that I have moved on from Great White. We have been headed in different directions over the past year, but our brotherhood will always be there. I will see you all on the road SOON — I’m excited about new adventures ahead, especially with the Mitch Malloy VH Experience and my Acoustic Storytellers show.”
