Searching for a new singer. November 4, 2012
Hey everyone. We are sorry to report that Matt Murray has left the band. We are currently looking for someone to replace him. This has pushed back the release of the album but I promise it will be worth the wait. We will keep you informed as things progress.
Attn fans! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but
CTV has decided to back out of having us on their morning show because we are "too heavy for their audience".
Although very disappointed, we really can't say that we are surprised.
Thinking of maybe starting a petition. What do you guys think?
We are currently in the process of booking a tour for September so be sure to keep checking here and on our Facebook page for upcoming show dates.
If you want to see Shades of Sorrow in your town, be sure to contact us and let us know!
