BLESS THE FALL ANNOUNCE BEAU BOKEN AS NEW SINGER

Lesser bands might implode after facing the sudden departure of its lead singer mid-tour, but Arizona’s blessthefall did anything but, after vowing to keep moving forward when it parted ways with former frontman Craig Mabbitt during a European tour with Silverstein in late 2007.

As one of the highlights on last winter’s Rockstar Taste of Chaos, blessthefall proved not only that they could still rock; but that they were rock solid. With bass player Jared Warth and guitarist Eric Lambert filling in temporarily on screams and singing parts respectively, the band rose to the challenge and then some.

After months spent searching for a permanent lead singer, blessthefall finally found what they were looking for in L.A. native (and current Huntington Beach, CA resident)
Beau Bokan. Upon their initial meeting, an immediate rapport was struck with the singer and he was soon welcomed into the family.

As drummer Matt Traynor explains,” It was not an easy task finding a singer who can sing well, rock out, and most importantly, fit in with the band and click with the four of us. (Beau) is the nicest dude we have tried out and sings like a beast. ”

Blessthefall is expected to hit the studio in November to begin recording the follow-up to its 2007 breakthrough release, His Last Walk (Science Records). Since forming the new lineup the band mates have been bonding while camped out in Costa Mesa, CA, where they are furiously writing new material and demoing tracks.

Starting today, Buzznet.com will exclusively premiere “To Hell And Back”, the first blessthefall track featuring Bokan on vocals, as well as new photos of the band. On Friday, September, 26, blessthefall will launch their brand new MySpace page featuring additional exclusive photos.
