Deathcore band Buried Above Ground announces the departure of vocalist, Eric McMahon. While no reason was given for the split, based on Eric’s announcement, him recently having a child probably has something to do with it.
The band’s statement reads as follows:
“We have decided to part ways with our vocalist Eric. February 8th at Amsterdam Bar and Hall in St Paul MN will be his last ever performance with the band.
To all our fans and supporters…
We would never cancel or miss a show unless there was literally nothing else possible that could be done to prevent it. That being said, we will not be missing one single date of the upcoming scheduled Chaos & Carnage Tour and look forward to getting back on the road and hanging out with as many of you as possible.
In turn, we are currently seeking a new vocalist. Please upload any and all auditions to YouTube or Facebook, then send us the corresponding link for consideration. We have new material written, more tour plans, video and photo shoots, and lots of other behind the scenes stuff all happening as we speak. Obviously we take what we do very seriously, and we expect you to as well. Being in a professional touring band must be your life.
Feel free to tag your friends or vocalists you know below.
Thank you from the bottom of our blackened hearts for all the support, and we very much look forward to seeing what you got.
– Buried Above Ground”
And Eric posted the following:
“Hey guys I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been on the good ol Facebook, but there’s 2 big things I have for you. 1st is like to introduce you all to my little metal head Elliot McMahon. She came into this world just about 3 months ago now. And as for number 2, it was no easy decision, but I have decided to step down as the front man for Buried above ground. It’s been one hell of a time and I thank all love all of you, here in the cities as well as everyone I’ve met along the way, for all the support over the years. With that our show Feb. 8 will be my last and I hope to be up there partying with all of you one more time,”
