Texas In July Welcome New Vocalist, Begin Working On New Album

Texas In July have finally broken their public silence following months of little-to-no contact with fans.

It was August 2013 when the world last saw Texas In July hit the stage, and as an announcement from the band reveals today, it was around that same time the members themselves wondered if they would ever play together again. Alex Good, longtime frontman, was leaving, and as soon as tour ended guitarist Christian Royer decided it was time for him to depart as well. The band was in shambles, but they have since found a new frontman and are once again ready …

The Contortionist Announce New Vocalist

It was a sad day for TC fans when it was announced that Jonathan Carpenter would be leaving the band earlier this year. His mix of vocals helped define their sound and it was hard to imagine anyone taking his place, but today, The Contortionist have announced that they have indeed found a replacement in Last Chance To Reason vocalist, Mike Lessard. We have to say, if there was anyone who could do it, Mike is the man. He has a similar range of highs and lows and has already filled in for Jonathan on tour.

You Could Be Shai Hulud’s New Vocalist

We previously reported that Chad from New Found Glory would not stay as Shai Hulud‘s vocalist, and they would search for a permanent replacement later. What we didn’t realize was just how open the search for a new vocalist would be.
