Following David Seymour's recent departure as lead vocalist for Griever after seven years at the helm, the Bournemouth-based metalcore act are have opened up submissions for a new frontman or frontwoman to join the ranks of iconically black-clad band.
This is an excellent opportunity to join an established, reputable band who have toured in Europe in the past, and have two six-track EP's out to date alongside a number of singles.
The vacancy posted on social media this week (October 9th) specifies Griever will be needing to fill the void left by Seymour in preparation for a forthcoming album and likely subsequent tours.
Taking to social media to announce his departure on October 2nd, Seymour writes:
It is with great sadness that I reveal that I have decided to step down as vocalist of Griever. This band has been everything to me since we founded in 2011 and I've poured every ounce of my passion and creativity into making Griever the best it can possibly be.
Music has saved my life more times than I can count and without the cathartic release of performing songs I have written with my best friends, I doubt I would be here writing this message right now.
But, things change. Things grow. We change as people. Life throws different curve-balls and sometimes you have to follow your gut instinct, even if it hurts your heart a little.
So for me the story ends here, and I no longer feel I can be a part of the band's journey. I've made so many amazing friends along the road and shared some unbelievable experiences with the boys. I am so thankful for the support we have received down the years and I am filled with so much pride about what we've achieved. I wish the boys every success and I know big things are just around the corner.
Let's have a cup of tea and a biscuit some time. Thank you for everything.
