Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (07/10/12)

StatementWe are parting ways with our vocalist, we felt that he was not a good fit for our band. We wish him well in his future endeavors.

This. At this point, if Shane can't come back then they need to pull the plug. The MVP was clearly the singer.

Wow. I figured he wouldn't go back because someone caused bad blood or something. I'll file this under "Don't know, don't care".

I wondered when they announced this if this guy would be able to fit in with CYE, who are overt and devout in their Christianity. His other band just screams "we started a bad metalcore band to party and fuck underage scene girls" to me. Sorry if anyone is offended by that generalization... that's just the vibe I get from a lot of these Risecore types, even though I know a lot of them proclaim themselves to be Christian bands.

He wasn't so great at Bamboozle. Lacked stage presence and fumbled with some of the words.

i saw them at bamboozle. i give the dude props for stepping it up on such short notice. I definitely felt that he was a pretty good fit for the band, his vocals were very similar to Shane's. I doubt they are going to find anyone as good as Shane.
