The vocals sound good. I think the lyrics are a little off rhythmically.

Wasn't crazy about this. Glad they decided to use those deep backing vocals again though.

Just realized the new singers english. They've really dropped all metal elements which isnt necessarily a bad thing

Yeah, it still sounds somewhat the same to me. His singing just isn't as powerful as Raymonds was though.

Wasn't too crazy about this song. Singer seems good though. Will check out the album. Hoping for a bit more melodic songs.

I fell in love with these guys after listening to Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts, the vocals were just so great and the songs were just so catchy. While this songs is still good, the vocals are going to take some time to get used to.

I'll take your word for it and check them out, but this song posted above was pretty bad. I honestly hated the vocals

I for one feel like their best release is their EP.

Here's a track off it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brxIJg9cpBE

No fancy video but awesome fucking song

About the new vocalist, i really disliked his input on this song and i'd say Close Your Eyes without Shane will hardly ever feel as good

Their older stuff is pretty good, this will have to grow on me, I dig the new singer though.

Why did Shane leave the band?

"Why did Shane leave the band?"

His voice was physically incapable of performing on a touring level and I guess he was seriously damaging his vocals. I was surprised to hear that because I saw them a few times and he was great. This band really will never reach anything great without him though. He made them who they were.

Really? Oh damn, that's a shame to hear man, dude had an incredible voice indeed. The new guy isn't amazing or anything and I doubt they'll ever top their work with Shane, but I think he's pretty decent. Curious to see what else they've been working on.

I feel like I'm the only person who thought Shane was holding the band back. His vocals were just irritating to me. He sounded like someone who didn't actually have a good vocal range trying to have a good vocal range. Not sure if that makes any sense.

I like how the lyrics are made up of letters from band logos lol

Anyways, I don't mind the new vocalist. Probably because I haven't listened to these guys enough to
grow super attached to the old one, though I do prefer him.
