Across The Sun Comments On Lineup Changes

Portland, OR's Across The Sun has checked in with the following recap of recent activity and announcement about lineup changes:

"Hey everyone! We've been promising you an update on the band as well as the status of our upcoming album. The last year has been a crazy one, so here it goes!

"Since the release of our album, Before The Night Takes Us, Across The Sun has been, not unlike many other bands, experiencing our fair share of ups and downs. During our tour with Attila and Our Last Night, our keyboardist and good friend, Shane Murray, announced to us that he would be leaving the band. We were sad to see him go, but understanding of his reasons for such a decision. We redeveloped our live show and began playing to a metronome and live keyboard tracks to compensate for Shane's absence and to ensure that our live sound is as sharp as ever.

"Earlier last year, the band made yet another lineup adjustment when we parted ways with our former vocalist, Brandon Davis. Brandon is a talented vocalist, and solid performer, however, his time with the band ended duplicitously. Sam, John and I felt it would be best that we replace Brandon with someone who is dedicated to his craft, honest in his dealings with the band, and passionate about the music that ATS creates.

"Replacing Brandon, is our close friend, and accomplished vocalist, Marty Wormley. Marty has completely improved the way that we write as a band, and we cannot wait to share these amazing tracks with all of you. Nearly half of the album is written, and we hope to start tracking this Spring or Summer.

"We sincerely feel that the band is as strong as ever, and we know that this next album will prove that."
