Bury Your Dead singer leaves band

Thursday, May 10, 2007 10:35 PM PT


Earlier today we received an email stating that Bury Your Dead singer Michael Crafter has left the band. This information has yet to be confirmed, but here's a statement attributed to Crafter:

"Since I got to the USA I knew I had a lot of weight on my shoulders. I wanted to prove myself so much and be a good frontman for BYD. It's been 2 months since I got to the USA and all I have wanted is to be home with my friends and this stops me from giving my all. I met a lot of great people here. My time with the band was short and was a lot of fun and a great experience. Eric, Bubble, Slim and Mark became my new mates and I'll forever be grateful I was given this chance. This tour has opened my eyes up to a lot of things and being in a band in another country isn't what I want to do. From practicing and playing shows with BYD will always be a great memory and something I'm glad I gave a shot. But my home is Australia and home is where the heart is. Thanks again."

So who the fck is singing on the current tour then?

5/10/2007 11:05:11 PM
As a result, Bury Your Dead have reportedly tapped Cassius frontman Myke Terry as their new vocalist.

5/10/2007 11:27:42 PM
^^^ BULLSHIT

5/10/2007 11:38:01 PM

5/11/2007 12:13:11 AM
Isn't the Cassius dude a blake? From what I remember, he has a good voice. The only cool thing about this dude is that he's Australian.

5/11/2007 1:02:09 AM

5/11/2007 5:25:15 AM
considering they've been playing the same songs for years, this isn't surprising. call it quits.

5/11/2007 5:57:29 AM

BURY THIS fckING THREAD

5/11/2007 5:44:00 PM
I think its crap that this band cant hold a fckin singer

5/11/2007 6:00:16 PM
he probably realized saying "we're bury your dead from boston massachusetts" in an australian accent just wasn't cutting it.

5/11/2007 6:05:05 PM
they came to Ft. Worth and i didn't even fcking go. so pissed. i did hear that they sucked. kinda bummed.

5/11/2007 6:15:43 PM
sounds like risky business to me

5/11/2007 11:33:30 PM
For all those calling for this band to break up, I think they did that already once right after the first record. Then they reformed.

5/12/2007 5:58:26 PM
I wish they would break up too

5/13/2007 3:17:32 AM
if anyone deserves van fires, it's bury your dead.

5/13/2007 7:54:13 AM
I guess getting a Australian sounded like a better idea then it really was. That was really fcking stupid, and this guy is a fcking idiot for even trying this shit if he wasnt 100% sure. What a waste of time.

5/13/2007 7:56:05 AM
advocate 5/11/2007 6:00:16 PM he probably realized saying "we're bury your dead from boston massachusetts" in an australian accent just wasn't cutting it. HAHAHAHA

5/13/2007 11:38:27 AM
fck HIM, fck ERIC, fck BURY YOUR DEAD, the rest of the band needs to wake up and figure out its not 2003 anymore....at least Myke Terry has sick vocals

5/14/2007 12:17:35 AM
seriously...any and all "tough guy" bands should just eat a bullet and realize that not only are they lame...they're more of a drag on society than an illegal alien with four kids...and by "alien" I mean Mexican...and by "four" I mean 12.

5/14/2007 1:44:35 AM
all you asswipes are just jealous that youre getting fatter and fatter sitting online and working at McDonalds while theyre prolly living your dream of being in a pretty big hardcore band who doesnt have to work...

5/15/2007 12:43:16 AM
bring back Hamartia
