Conducting From The Grave parts ways with vocalist

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 7:18 PM PT

California deathcore/melodic death metal act Conducting From The Grave has announced the departure of frontman Mikey Powell. The band has issued the following statement:

"After 5 years and 2 albums, Conducting From The Grave have decided to part ways with vocalist Mikey Powell. We wish him the best and love all the work he did vocally on Revenants and our self titled album. Reasons behind this are mainly geographical and financial. He lives near Los Angeles and we are based in Sacramento. We used to tour quite frequently, but over the last two years of minimal band activity (3-5 shows per year) band members' priorities in life have changed. A rift of sorts developed, and he has expressed interest in stepping down as our front man in the past. Since we are now old man weekend warriors it doesn't make sense to have a band member that lives 350 miles away. We are still moving forward with the re-recorded re-release of our debut EP Trials of the Forsaken, and the 10 year anniversary shows booked for May 1st-3rd. Our ex vocalist Drew Winter will be handling vocal duties. You can hear his most recent work vocally in the band Shadow of the Colossus. Come check out the shows, our friends in Aenimus and Flub are joining us for all 3.

5/1 Orangevale, CA @ The Boardwalk
5/2 Reno, NV @ Jub Jubs (Spring Meltdown)
5/3 Upland, CA @ The Grizzly Den

DREW WINTER HAS THEE TINIEST HANDS THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A GROWN MAN. Also I was wondering if he ever shaved off his PEDO MUSTACHE? That shit made him look like a 14 year old Megadeth fan circa 1987. FFFFFFAAAAAG BAND, FFFFFFAAAAG SINGERS!!!

Peace, Níggers!

Lou got me pregnant and when I tried to get ahold if him he acted like I didn't exist. She is three now and has never known her own father. I say she's better off.
