Close Your Eyes Reveal New Vocalist

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (05/18/12)
Close Your Eyes released a statement regarding the changes to their line-up, including the announcement that Micheal Sawyer (of Miss Fortune) is their new vocalist.
StatementWe are about to play our first show with the new lineup and I thought it would be a good idea to put some information out there! First of all there have been a few lineup changes that I know fans have been waiting anxiously to find out. Andrew Rodriguez is back with us on the road playing guitar, Jordan Hatfield is playing drums for us and Micheal Sawyer is now filling the vocal spot. We are glad to have Andrew back with us and we missed him out on the road, even though he never actually quit the band. We are excited for everyone to come out and see us and meet the new members! We are coming out strong and have been practicing hard trying not to miss a beat! I personally think our fans will be pleasantly surprised at how little the sound is changing with the lineup changes. We are who we are after all! Following the mini tour we are currently are on, we will be going out on the Scream The Prayer tour this summer. Thank you to all of our fans for all your support and for sticking with us as while we were working things out

Mikey Sawyer is a really great guy, but I don't think he fits with CYE's style at all. He's the current vocalist for Miss Fortune for anyone that hasn't heard him yet.

Thanks for the heads up. I was trying to find out who he was but had no luck.

I've never seen CYE, but I really wanted to at Bamboozle. Too bad scheduling doesn't allow.

Good for Mikey. Smart dude. It's going to be challenging to do Shane's parts, but he'll figure it out.

Blah blah I submitted this, I'm angry blah blah.

It's kind of funny if you look at the Miss Fortune Facebook about their vocalist singing for CYE. They're insistent that Mike will stay with them and are getting mad at kids who say otherwise. Let's see, CYE has two well receieved albums and a large international fanbase while MF has one track that has not even been officially released yet....

For those who don't know, MF is Eddie Cano (ex screamer of Scarlett o'hara) new band.

Ahh, that is tough. BSF are actually here tonight and I'm missing it, unfortunately.

I've never heard anything about this guy so I hope he's good. They also got a new drummer and their one guitarist is back from college.

Glad that they're still doing something. They had a LOT of momentum after that last album, and it'd be a shame to squander all of that.
