Below is our complete Cassius news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Bury Your Dead has officially confirmed the status of former Cassius vocalist Myke Terry as their permanent singer and Bubble on bass. Here's a statement from the band:
"We know there's been a lot of confusion about the current status of our singer so we figured we'd take the time to fill everyone in on what's been going on. The band has faced many hurdles and gone through a few lineup changes but we would like to announce that Myke Terry, former vocalist of Cassius from Richmond, Virginia, will be taking the helm as our new, permanent vocalist. It's been a long 2 years since we were down here in Florida recording the last record and a lot has happened that could have broken up a lot of bands... and was close to breaking us up. But we found Myke Terry to step up and take over on vocals for us. We have also permanently added Bubble on bass.
"This new record is the best thing we have ever done collectively as a band. Everyone has been thinking about this since we put the last one out. We've gone through a lot. We've lost and gained a singer and all of these things have helped shape this record and make us stronger than ever. Bury Your Dead is coming back with a vengeance and with a new front man. All the pieces to the puzzle are now complete and we can't wait for everyone to hear what we have created in the studio and get back to riff gigging as soon as possible."
For his part, Terry had the following to say:
"You know, they say that some opportunities only come once in a lifetime... well, even rarer than that, an opportunity as this comes around twice. With that being said, after being offered this position not once, but twice, I decided it was probably in my best interest to give it a shot. And I feel that I've made the right choice by 100%. I am beyond honored to perform every night with a group of guys I've looked up to and been friends with for such a long time. They are dedicated, hard workers and I am looking forward to seeing where this chapter in my life will lead me."
Bury Your Dead parted ways with vocalist Michael Crafter (formerly of the the Australian metal band I Killed The Prom Queen) less than two months after he was named the group's new lead singer.
