We've teamed up with Victory Records to celebrate the upcoming Vans Warped Tour by giving away autographed merch from both Close Your Eyes and Terror. With both artists performing all summer long, here"s what we want to know -- what date of Warped Tour will you be attending and what songs are you most looking forward to hearing played by the two bands? One winner will be selected randomly from the replies to win an autographed copy of Terror's Live By The Code, a Terror t-shirt, a copy of Close Your Eyes’ Line In The Sand, a Line In The Sand poster, and a Close Your Eyes t-shirt. Good luck.

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!

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...
