Exclusive: Close Your Eyes announce new vocalist and lineup changes

May 17 2012, 4:50 PM EDT By Brian Kraus

Close Your Eyes guitarist Brett Callaway has released a statement to AP regarding their lineup changes and what fans can expect when seeing them at the Bamboozle this weekend:

“Hey everybody! We 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 (pictured above) 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 for everyone to come out and see us and meet the new members! We are coming out strong and have been practicing hard trying not to miss a beat! I personally think our fans will be pleasantly surprised at how little the sound is changing with the lineup changes. We are who we are after all! Following the mini tour we are currently are on, we will be going out on the Scream The Prayer tour this summer. Thank you to all of our fans for all your support and for sticking with us as while we were working things out.”

Close Your Eyes will be performing at the Bamboozle this Saturday, May 19 at 5:30 pm (EST) on the Saints & Sinners stage.
