Vocalist Myke Terry has officially parted ways with Massachusetts metalcore act Bury Your Dead.
Terry said the following in a press statement:
“After spending over three years with Bury Your Dead, becoming a family, and almost losing our lives together I would think that we would all have each other’s backs better than this. I never thought someone who hadn’t sweat, bled, or cried with us would have the power to dictate the inner workings of our band. I’d like to thank everyone that bought a Bury Your Dead CD, came to a show, or played with us for making the past few years of my life so amazing and I look forward to my future as a solo artist. I’m sure everyone who has ever chanted ‘bring Back Bruso’ is now stoked for his return.”
This sudden exit is reportedly the outcome of stalled contract negotiations between Bury Your Dead founder, Slim, and Mediaskare Records. Terry’s press release states that Mediaskare was “unwilling to renegotiate with Terry” and that they “made a decision they arguably were not in a position to make” when hiring former Bury Your Dead vocalist Mat Bruso to help complete the band’s new record.
Bury Your Dead’s forthcoming full-length is set for a late 2011 release.
