Chicago, IL metal band Barrier has announced the departure of vocalist Colin Sharkey, who has been replaced by David Libert. The group has issued the following statement:

"It has been a nice run as the Barrier that most of you have come to know, but on mutual terms, Colin will no longer be our vocalist, making full pursuit of his true passion for fashion. We appreciate everything Colin has contributed to this band, but we understand that his passion was no longer focused in the same place as the rest of ours.

"That said, we are very proud to announce the addition of our new vocalist, David Libert, to the Barrier team. Sometimes it takes a drastic change like this to push a band forward, and we are very much looking ahead to the future and cannot wait to share with all of you the new direction in which we are headed. This is a very important transition period for us as a band, and we are extremely excited to begin a new and improved chapter of Barrier. Thank you for your ongoing support, and we promise to have this new album to you very soon."
