Bury Your Dead frontman quits band

Monday, January 1, 2007 11:45 AM PT

Bury Your Dead singer Mat Bruso has reportedly left the band. Consequently, the group has apparently dropped off their January UK dates with Killswitch Engage and The Haunted. No further information is available.

UPDATE: Bury Your Dead has confirmed the departure of Bruso, releasing the following statement:

"We are sorry to say that Mat Bruso will not be singing for Bury Your Dead anymore. He has decided that he has come to a point in his life where he must focus on more important things like going back to school to become a teacher and his upcoming marriage. You have to respect that and we are in no way mad. Just upset that were loosing a piece of the family. We do however look forward to trying out new vocalist and finding our new frontman. Thanks to everyone taking a interest in trying out and thanks for everyones support. We also apologize for having to cancel our Europe run with Killswitch Engage and The Haunted. We hope you all understand."

1/1/2007 3:15:51 PM
he probably got upset when someone confused him for fred durst, those nu metal singers are hard to distinguish

1/1/2007 3:45:11 PM
"shit band." "gays." "hoooorible band." If they suck so bad, stop reading their fcking news and posting about it gays.

Old BYD was good stuff. Sad to see him go. And as for him getting beat up by some FSU dckbag, if you think your "crew" is tough, start something with a real gang and see how tough you feel.

1/1/2007 5:45:36 PM
this is wonderful news

1/1/2007 5:47:57 PM
he left to join koRn.

1/1/2007 6:03:42 PM
fantastic. the world needs more of these kind of happenings.

1/1/2007 6:05:59 PM
3rd singer, by the way. not second. just to clear that up. still a douchebag.

1/1/2007 6:56:47 PM
Last time I saw that guy, he was rocking out to Jada Pinkett Smith's band at Ozzfest.

1/1/2007 7:26:41 PM

1/2/2007 12:58:30 AM
Oh well, he still has his career at Friendly's to fall back on.

1/2/2007 2:05:45 AM
this is the hottest news since Saddams testicle hanging.

1/2/2007 2:43:33 AM
seriously, stop talking shit about a person you dont know. Mat is a genuine and nice person and so are the rest of the guys. Atleast they are making a name for themselves, working hard, getting on huge tours and doing what most people omly dream of.

1/2/2007 2:46:05 AM
get some new comments, lambgoat. he was alright. no reason to be so fcking ridiculous.

1/2/2007 2:54:55 AM
He's gone, they should split

1/2/2007 3:13:14 AM
bury your fcking dead.

1/2/2007 4:55:01 AM
I don't talk shit about people I know. So by default, it's my duty to talk shit about people I don't know. shit band so glad this happened please break up and destroy your master tapes and unsold cds.

1/2/2007 5:23:31 AM
Awesome band and good people

1/2/2007 6:47:10 AM
What has the world come to

1/2/2007 8:57:26 AM

1/2/2007 10:29:33 AM
I like matt. he's a good dude.

1/2/2007 11:03:41 AM
sad to see him go

1/2/2007 11:55:07 AM
Who fcking cares. This band is of no significance, they have made no impact whatsoever.

1/2/2007 12:34:14 PM
xrebelheartsx 1/1/2007 6:05:59 PM 3rd singer, by the way. not second. just to clear that up. still a douchebag. ACTUALLY this was infact the 5th SINGER they've had, by the way. Yes, really. AND Yes, really, who cares!

1/2/2007 1:29:34 PM
"I WANNA SEE SUM SHIT!!!1" -mat bruso

1/2/2007 1:49:34 PM
right before he left the band, mat said "THIS IS THE LAST TIME YOU WILL EVER YOU WILL NEVER LIE TO MY FACE!" and the rest of the band said "what the fck does that even mean?" and then he quit. true story.

1/2/2007 2:30:28 PM
wow "jeremysignals" what an original name you have! it appears you have been in touch with VIP hc scene members over AIM to have accessed that info. sounds like everyone in this story, including you, is a grown up child.

1/2/2007 4:30:06 PM
it was a combination of an apparent red bull overdose that opened his eyes that his life was spiraling out of control after he had wrecked his yellow ferrari killing a single mother and her fiance

1/2/2007 4:30:40 PM
i like these guys but some of these "fans" are fcking babies. this guy in the comment above me is just a fcking retard.

1/2/2007 4:37:48 PM
and in conjunction with the guy above me he also quit because he realized he was in a band thats fanbase consisted of 14 yr olds that would DIE FOR BURY YOUR DEAD. dun dun dun dun dun-dun dun-dun dun dun

1/2/2007 4:47:48 PM
Butter Your fcking Bread makes me LOL everytime

1/2/2007 4:57:38 PM

1/2/2007 5:16:27 PM

1/2/2007 5:58:41 PM

1/2/2007 6:47:53 PM
i have mixed feelings about this..i kinda like cover but found beauty to have 0 replay value

1/2/2007 10:05:34 PM
im not even gonna comment on the number of grammatical errors in that statement. D'OH! i just did.

1/3/2007 12:32:19 AM

1/3/2007 1:23:08 AM

1/3/2007 1:57:10 AM
too many comments being left for such a retard band.

1/3/2007 2:58:09 AM
Not a bad group. Go figure..a band that has made a name for themself and lambgoat hates them. How hard is lakjdflajsdklajsdd rocking these days anyways guys?

1/3/2007 3:00:45 AM
but what will he do? http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseac

1/3/2007 6:31:50 AM
The dude is a awesome frontman. That said, his vocals on the last album sounded really tired. I think this is good for everybody. BYD needs a little more range on the vocal end.

1/3/2007 8:21:20 AM
UPDATE: of course he has to concentrate on his marriage. she helped him write the lyrics of the last cd, which SUCKED. less nu metal effects, more breakdowns and two step parts.

1/3/2007 10:39:08 AM
please say that the BYD4LIFE guy is a gimmick

1/3/2007 12:57:26 PM
ARCHITECTkills 1/3/2007 12:52:33 PM ill do it, but im only using a single kick, a snare, hi hat, 1 tom and a ride cymbal and we have to play atleast 4 SLEEP covers a show.

1/3/2007 1:18:11 PM
Whoever said that the morons in this band were "nice guys" is an idiot. Bunch of jerkoffs they are.

1/3/2007 3:20:23 PM
i wouldn't go so far as to say he's the best. he was good, and they're all good dudes... but not the best hardcore vocalist...

1/3/2007 4:50:49 PM
BYD4LIFE........ yea, pretty homo.

1/3/2007 5:59:56 PM
hell yeah we are starting this year off right, now maybe they will just break up and start hosting shows on MTV or something where they belong.

1/3/2007 7:03:48 PM
114 comments!?! man James Brown, Gerald Ford, Saddam and now this.... :(

1/3/2007 7:12:50 PM
Man I hope he becomes a Chemistry teacher. Pb IS fckING LEAD!!!!

1/3/2007 8:14:34 PM

1/4/2007 11:03:12 PM
BYD was good in the beginning, but i couldn't get into their newer shit. either way, the only impact they made was eggshells on bruce dckinson's face at ozzfest. me no care.

1/5/2007 12:02:22 AM
"...he must focus on more important things like..." Not singing for such a shitty band would be on the top of my priorities...

1/16/2007 11:51:27 AM
