I find it funny that the same thing happened to Attack Attack! and Of Mice & Men with this whole clean vocals issue.

I got this dude's name mixed up with the lead singer of Hinder... Now that really would have been some bad news.

@andcas, yeah I know, its just funny cause Austin used to be in Attack Attack! and now his new band has the same problem they did

Yeah but theres no way hes gonna be able to sing cleans and scream live hes gonna get really winded I'm not so sure this was a good move.

I know that Austin could be a good clean singer if he tried but he'll never replace shay, no one can.

I don't like this band and now I like them less. I like how all these bands just decide their vocalists can start doing cleans. A little studio magic and they're all set. Dude's a douche anyway.

He's a good screamer and he has a very different sounding voice but his range really isn't too good. He basically has that one screechy pitch and never really tries to stray too far from it.

I'll give him that I suppose. The scream at the beginning of Westbound And Down is fairly impressive.

All I can think of reading that is Deez Nuts haha. I'll have to listen to that song though I don't think I'v heard it.

@InnocentShadow if he can't do cleans live then he shouldn't do them in the studio.

Yeah I feel bad for him.

Heres to hoping he can tackle his depression problem, and back problems and get back with OMAM

Saw them front row at Warped last year, the OG Loko breakdown with the hard in the paint sample was one of the most epic things ever.

Can't recall what his cleans actually sound like, but I do hope they don't infest every single song on the new album.

^ This will probably suck because Austin is a douche bag and probably lived off of Shay's vocals/lyrics. He could work on his singing and work everything out but I doubt he will. The Flood was a needle in haystack.

I didn't think the of mice and men album was that great but I can't deny his screams are freaking amazing. Dickwad or not, amazing screamer.

Eh. He does have a pretty unique scream, whether you consider it good or not, and his singing in that one song was decent. Though i don't see how he'll be able to do it live since it seems like he runs out of stamina frequently.
