Blessthefall Release First Single, Announce New Singer

Attention Blessthefall fans! I come bearing some AWESOME news — Buzznet is releasing “To Hell And Back,” the first track off the band’s yet-to-be-titled new album. This tune features their shiny new singer, Beau Bokan, who gave some insight on the song , “‘To Hell And Back’ is about those times in life when your back is to the wall and all the odds are against you. It’s about not giving up, not giving in, and just pushing forward.”

Moving forward is exactly what Blessthefall did after their former frontman, Craig Mabbit, split in the middle of an ’07 European tour. The band carried on by subbing in their bassist and guitarist on singing and screaming; they also posted a blog soliciting serious singers so that they’d waste no time in solidifying a new line-up.

“It was not an easy task finding a singer who can sing well, rock out, and most importantly, fit in with the band and click with the four of us. (Beau) is the nicest dude we have tried out and sings like a beast,” drummer Matt Traynor commented.

I wonder if Beau knows any good jokes. Check out the song, the singer and a couple new studio shots over at Blessthefall’s profile.
