Dying is a bit of a harsh word, but a few days ago it was announced that Max Green of Escape The Fate has been kicked out, and they have been facing line up changes as is for several months now. While their fate is still yet to be seen, Get Scared has just announced that their vocalist, Nicholas Matthews, is leaving Get Scared. They posted a note on Facebook with their announcement, which you can read below.
"We regret to inform you that (Nicholas Blake Matthews) has decided, his time with Get Scared has run out. This is so hard for us to announce, However this was not a decision made against Nicholas's wishes nor was he kicked out by any
means. Nicholas felt Get Scared was no longer what he wanted to pursue and has moved on musically.
Once again, This is so hard for us to announce. We are all
still shaken up by it, there is no preparing for a loss as great as this.
Although this was a shock to the entire band, Nicholas and Get Scared absolutely have no bad blood towards one another. Nicholas will forever be apart of the Get Scared family and we all look forward to his undoubtful success as a musician.
With having said that, Get Scared will continue rock'n on! We are currently working on new material and couldn't be more proud/excited of the new songs. We can't wait to share them with all of you!
Unfortunately, any winter touring plans Get Scared had prior, will be postponed until further notice.
At this time we do not have any announcements of a new singer. But, We will be holding auditions via video submission. We feel that we should give our fans an equal opportunity to become Get Scared's new singer as we would to a professional singer. Who better to give a chance to than the very people who gave us life, our fans.
Get Scared loves you unconditionally, and we look forward to sharing the future with all of you! We will be posting many updates to keep you current with our plans."
That note was posted this morning (Wednesday, November 30, 2011), at 12:40am EST. Nothing more has been said, except one status from their guitarist, Johnny B saying nothing more than, "Life is like a 1,000 page book...u want to quit halfway through, but then u realize you have a lot left to look forward to ♥ Johnny B"
What's going to happen now? As of yet, nobody knows. Guess everyone will have to wait and see.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
