Chiodos writing new record; looking for vocalist to replace Owens

by | Oct 22, 2009

Chiodos is currently writing a new record, and looking for a vocalist to take over Craig Owens’ duties. The band issued the following statement:

“First off, we’d like to thank everyone for their support and understanding. We also want to keep all of you updated with everything that has been happening. For the past couple weeks we’ve locked ourselves in a studio here in MI and writing as much as we possibly can. Tanner Wayne (Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Underminded) has been behind the kit and so far things are feeling awesome. There are about a dozen songs that we feel great about right now. We know the big question hanging out there is “Who will the new singer of Chiodos be?” That being said we’ve had some amazing singers come forward to fill the slot and there are some great ideas bouncing around.

We have received a massive amounts of emails from guys and girls who would like to be considered for the vocalist position. We went ahead and developed a page where you can upload music and videos to. We’ll be going through every submission and keeping you in the loop with what we’re up to. Please contact this email with SUBMISSIONS ONLY as we won’t be able to answer everyone’s questions. Thanks everyone, we’re excited to make this next step with all of you!
