As of April 20th, 2013, lead vocalist Xander Bourgeois announced he is leaving the band, in order to focus on staying clean and sober. He also announced that he would be working on a new band that he feels will only succeed in his sobriety. On April 30th, 2013, the band announced their new vocalist would be Aaron Melzer, formerly of the local band Author and Finisher. Along with the vocalist announcement, the band shared a small clip of a new song off of their sophomore album, which they are currently recording and plan to release during this summer's Vans Warped Tour.
