In an unfortunate turn of events, vocalist Ezra Haynes has parted ways with the Death Metal talents of Allegaeon. Luckily, it appears as if the split has been amicable with no bad blood on either side. He will be temporarily replaced by Riley McShane from the bands Son of Aurelius, Inanimate Existence, and Continuum. Here’s the official word from the band followed by some music:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we have parted ways with our vocalist and brother Ezra Haynes. Lineup changes suck for the fans, and even more so for the band. He is still a very dear friend to us and we wish him the best with his future projects. That being said we’re very excited to embark on this tour with Act Of Defiance.

Our good friend Riley McShane (Son of Aurelius/Inanimate Existence/Continuum) will be filling in on tour. As always come rage with us!
