Allegaeon splits with vocalist Ezra Haynes

Posted by on October 12, 2015

Allegaeon are set to embark on a co-headlling tour with fellow Metal Blade label-mates Act of Defiance later this month, so it’s a shocker to hear that co-founding vocalist Ezra Haynes is no longer with the band. Formed in 2008, Haynes has sang on all three of their Metal Blade releases, their most recent being 2014’s Elements of the Infinite.

Said the band on the line-up chage via Facebook:

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we have parted ways with our vocalist and brother Ezra Haynes. Lineup changes suck for the fans, and even more so for the band. He is still a very dear friend to us and we wish him the best with his future projects. That being said we’re very excited to embark on this tour with Act Of Defiance.”

Ezra Haynes make an annoucement, too, via the same Facebook update, so it seems the line-up change was without much drama:

“There is no easy way to say this: I am no longer a member of Allegaeon. At the moment there are some things that require my full undivided attention. With that being said, I wish Stancey pants, Greggoroth, B-Park the marksman (You guys better start calling him that) and Coco Malone the best of luck and great success, they deserve it more than anyone I know! The most important thing to me is that the fans understand truly how much I love and adore them. I’ve met literally thousands of amazing human beings over the last 7 years. You guys and gals are incredible and thank you for your ongoing support!
Will I continue music in the future? Most definitely, I am looking for projects, so feel free to contact me.”

Allegaeon will still head out with Act Of Defiance, with Riley McShane (who sings in Son of Aurelius and Continuum) taking over vocal duties.
