Shane Blay, the new frontman of Wovenwar, has posted an update to clarify that he will still be in Oh, Sleeper as well.
To put to rest the rumors that I'm leaving Oh Sleeper I tell you this: Micah and I started this band 8 years ago and have stayed with it through the thick and thin. That is still the case. Its tattoo'd on my chest for crying out loud. As long as Oh Sleeper is a band, I'll be in it.
As I Lay Dying have released a lengthy statement about their current situation. While the future of the band remains uncertain, the remaining members are moving forward with a new project fronted by Oh, Sleeper guitarist Shane Blay. New material from vocalist Tim Lambesis will also be surfacing in the near future.
There have been a lot of questions from fans over the past year and we'll hopefully be able to provide more answers over time. However, this update is only to address things related to AILD's future.
Originally, we said we'd update fans as soon as we knew more. We apologize for not sticking to that. It seemed best to wait until definitive news came in with a specific timeline....
Oh, Sleeper will embark on the I Heard It First Tour later this month with Like Moths To Flames and We Are Defiance. After each show, fans will be treated to a sneak peak of Oh, Sleeper's new album. Dates can be found in the replies.
Oh, Sleeper have posted the title track from their upcoming new album, Son of the Morning, on their Myspace page. They will be putting up new songs every Tuesday until the album comes out on August 25th.
