Reuban Gotto - Johnny Truant

About Reuban Gotto

Johnny Truant was a British, Brighton-based metalcore band, formed in 2000 under the name Severance. The band recorded 3 demos under this moniker before renaming themselves after one of the main characters of Mark Z. Danielewski's novel House of Leaves.

Although the band started out as a 4-piece, at the start of 2006, Al Kilcullen was added as a second guitarist. As of June 2006 however, Kilcullen was replaced by Reuben Gotto.

They were set to support Bring Me The Horizon in the US with Misery Signals and The Ghost Inside, however on October 31, 2008 the band unexpectedly announced on their Myspace that they were to split following their December UK tour. The band played their final show on December 17, 2008.

I just got back from playing Wacken, and the HT-DistX sounded absolutely killer - I didn't even bother setting up a distorted channel on the amp! The emulated output feature is f*cking awesome for recording too, and perfect for writing at home.
