‘A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe’ is OUT NOW! + Debut New Bass Singer
Pentatonix is back with some traditional and new Holiday hits that are guaranteed to be played on repeat this Christmas season.
The 3-time Grammy Award-winning a cappella group is arguably most known for their impeccable Christmas covers. With a total of four Christmas albums that have been released since 2012, they are now adding onto their already platinum-selling Christmas album [A Pentatonix Christmas] with some more songs. And a new surprising addition to that? A new bass singer.
Earlier in 2017, Pentatonix had made a formal announcement that their long-time bass, Avi Kaplan, would be leaving the group following their tour. Shortly thereafter, the group of four began the search and auditions for a new bass, who inevitably would have very big shoes to fill.
Recently on October 13, 2017, Matt Sallee [a long-time Pentatonix fan] was announced to be the new bass for Pentatonix. Apparently, his appearance is only temporary and will be singing for Pentatonix’s upcoming Christmas tour, but fans are hoping that he will end up becoming a permanent addition to the group.
