Former signer, Ronnie Radke had left the band due to his five years probation in a fight that killed 18 year old Michael Cook..

Further details on the future of Escape The Fate still to come….

Craig Mabbitt, lead singer of Blessthefall has left band. Here is an update from the band:

Hey everyone!

As some of you may know, and might find this to be a shock, we have parted ways with our vocalist Craig.

He left us mid tour out here in Europe about a week ago to be home with his child growing up and to figure out if pursuing the band thing was something he was still feeling. So, most of you may know, while he has been gone this past week and a half, we have been finishing the tour overseas with Silverstien just us 4 dudes. Since we HATE cancelling shows and we love our fans, we have decided to press on through the situation and still ROCK OUT for all ya. Jared has put down the bass just for now and has stepped it up filling in as the front man. Its been a fun week, the shows have been super intense. You guys out here are some of few that will ever get to see this hahahha.

We have decided it was better for us and better for Craig for him to just stay home and keep his heart with his little girl, who is growing up to be a little cutie, and our hearts out on the road making music together.

We DO NOT plan on throwing in the gloves though. This band was never about one member. Blessthefall was never focused around one person….we are not Dave Matthews or Avril Lavigne…we are BLESSTHEFALL, a group of fun dudes who love to play music and have fun while doing it. If you know us, you know how much we love playing music and being with our fans. I hope you all understand and respect this.

We love our fans to death. You guys are the best fans in music…in fact, our fans are more like family. We might as well call all of you our BTF family. So we need all you BTF family members to stick with us and support us 100% like you have been for the past 1..2…even 3 years if you guys have been crazy enough to be following us that long. We are not going anywhere, and I know that our loving BTF family will still be by our side through whatever stands in our way.

We have new singers in mind, obviously its not Craig, so lets get over that fact, but we have people in mind that are just as good, if not even better. We cant wait to show ya what we have up our sleeves! We are going to do just as we have been planning on doing this next year: Writing the new record while home starting this new year, big tour in Feb/March TBA, recording the new record in April/May and then hopefully Warped Tour again this summer. So be on the lookout for new songs/details/news. We hope to get some new songs/samples out as soon as we can! Hopefully by the end of January. Cant wait for you to hear the new stuff…its going to ROCK your socks off!

We don’t plan on giving up, thats why we are still out in Europe playing just us 4, we are dedicated to the band and our fans. Its fans like you that keep us going. So we expect you to not give up on us either! BTFfans4LIFE=UNITE!

Well keep ya posted!

Check back next week for the last European Tour Blog too!
With all the love

Saosin has a different sound from most bands I listen too. They combine harmony and rythum along with hard core wrifs and incorporating all those aspects into the “Screamo” style of music. They are a great band to listen to. I definitely think you should get their self-titled album.

Thirty years ago today Alice Cooper’s boa constrictor, a co-star of his live act suffered a fatal bite from a rat it was being fed for breakfast. Cooper held auditions for a replacement and a snake named ‘Angel’ got the gig. Now that’s pretty crazy.

Genre: Screamo, Post-Hardcore, Rock
Sounds like: Blessthefall, Emery, Pierce The Veil
Current Album: The Lover the Liar the Ruse

Glory Of This has been around for awhile, releasing two albums, Adoration and their recent release The Lover, The Liar, The Ruse. I know I posted their myspace and I know they don’t have any tracks up their, but I suggest you check out their purevolume site. Glory Of This has a great blend of melodic singing and hard screams that is sure to impress you. I really love songs such as Circle Yes or No, Flip For It, and Where I Am Now. I wasn’t able to find out much more about the band, whether they’re still around or not, but I do hope they are. Great music.
