Close Your Eyes Announce New Vocalist, Album Title

Posted by - 07:58 PM on 07/23/13
Close Your Eyes have announced Sam Robinson as their new vocalist. The band is currently in the studio with producer Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, Silverstein). Their new album, Line in the Sand, is due out in October via Victory Records.
We are very excited to finally be able to share with everyone that Sam Robinson is the vocalist of Close Your Eyes. I’m already blown away by the new material that we have been working on - his voice is a very strong addition to the CYE family. He is an incredible vocalist and a great guy that shares our vision and purpose. We cannot wait for everyone to hear the new songs and to be back on tour again. Come hang out and say what's up to Sam!

Sam was in Blessed By a Broken Heart after Tony, the vocalist on the 2 albums, left. And if you search on youtube "Close Your Eyes live 2013" you can find a TON on him. Google sucks compared to Youtube when trying to find what something/one sounds like...just saying haha!

Sam is actually a super legit singer. He has the vocal range of a hair metal singer, but his voice just works somehow so well in the CYE vibe.
thanks!

EDIT: Didn't quote everyone I meant to. His style is much more like Shane on their 2nd album...but with that said, it's totally different...from what I've heard.
