Close Your Eyes have announced a new album, entitled Line In The Sand. This is the band's first material with new vocalist Sam Roberts, after the departure of former vocalist Shane Raymond. New music and release dates are yet to be announced.
Pre-Order bundles are now available from the Victory Records Store:
Just started listening to Empy Hands and Heavy Hearts this week. Loved it. Sad to hear their vocalist left and hope the new
guy can do just as well, since I thought the Vocals were probably the best part about these guys.
Shane was a damn good vocalist. I don't listen to these guys much, but I still think they've got a good sound. Hopefully, the new vocalist is on par with their previous stuff.
I really enjoy these guys' first two records, so I'm hoping this is good too. Shane was a great vocalist, and everyone knew it would be hard to follow him up. But live videos with the new guy show promise when it comes to performing the old songs, so I'm hesitantly excited.
It'd be great if you could include the band's genre next time. I won't bother otherwise.
Digging: Rishloo - Eidolon
They're a hardcore band.
Why did the other vocalist leave?
personal issues like stress, depression, and hating life on the road
I don't think this band will carry on long without him because he was just one of those irreplaceable vocalists
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
You think with those problems, he would never have
joined. I heard the constant touring was messing up
pretty sure people can want to be in a band but hate touring or not know they hate touring till they start having to do it all the time
Really excited for this, sam has amazing vocals from the live shows. Between this and the new He is Legend album the rest of 2013 is set for me.
I was referring to the stress and depression. Tour life is a different thing all together.
stress and depression can hit out of nowhere lol
I doubt this guy will work.
Lol SAM ROBERTS CLOSE YOUR EYES OMG
Such a shame Shane left. He was one of the best vocalists in this genre.
Digging: City Lights - The Way Things Should Be
”stress and depression can hit out of nowhere lol”
Well yea but this is obviously connected to the band. Which he was in some time before they got noticed an victory signed. So why subject yourself to such thing? Not saying it was caused because of the band members because I don't know but even still, that's what it,seems like to me.
All I'd heard was that he'd thrown out his voice from constant touring. Never heard anything about "stress" or "depression."
If you have heard his new band I would say the reason why he left was because he lost his faith. The guys hinted at this awhile back.
if that's the reason why he felt like he had to leave then lol
especially if the band had a problem with it
Yeah its a shame he left but I think he believed a lot of their fanbase were of the same faith so he couldn't go on fronting the band, among other reasons I'm sure. Andcas if you like shanes vocals, check out his new band. Its different to say the least. https://www.facebook.com/thesedaystx
