Not trying to be a dick but the guy talking totally sounds like a slightly less weird Napolean Dynamite.

Nobody misses Xander. His screams are awful and allegedly even more awful live. Not to sound quick to judge, but even from that one second clip starting at :42 in the video, I can tell he's still not for me.

I've seen Secrets 3 times with Xander and once with Aaron, and I think Xander is better live than on their albums, but still nothing wonderful. Aaron is definitely a lot better than Xander live, though. Wayyyyyyy more consistent.

I don't have anything particularly bad to say about the dude's voice, but I always thought every Secrets song sounded the same. Although they catered to a very generic genre, there were a lot of cool/catchy parts in there - I just couldn't sit and make it through the album because all the songs were so similar. Maybe it was just the production, now that I think about it...

saw these guys with silverstein last year and had never heard of them prior. sounded waaay too generic for me, but this Xander fellow sure goes out with heart.
speaking of generic, really tired of band/song names referencing kings/crowns/thrones/etc

I guess I should start counting down the days until I hear "WHAT'S UP EVERYBODY, WE'RE CROWNING THE KING'S THRONE'S EMPIRE FROM HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA (or any other random city somewhere)!!!! LET'S SPLIT THIS FUCKING ROOM IN TWO, CIRCLE PIT!!!!!!!!!111" at a show.

I think that this guy deserves a lot of respect for the choices he made in regards to his music career so far. He has been very vocal and upfront in his lyrics and off the stage about his struggles with addiction, and was mature enough to give up something that thousands of other people dream about in order to get healthy. He refused to let himself and his bandmates drown in personal issues and took himself out of it so they could continue. Honesty is priceless and for that he has 100% of my support.
