A Change of Pace have posted an update about their new singer and their new EP. Check out the update below. You can hear new songs on the bands MySpace page and also pick up their EP, Just No Better Way, on iTunes.
How long has it been? 7…8…9 months?? Who knows?!? Regardless, it has been way too long! We miss everyone!!!
So here is what has been holding us up – – –
I started this band about 8 years ago with Torry. The last few years there has been something plaguing our band. Huge fights, drunken arguments, missing cash, lies, etc. The band was coming to a complete end. Honestly, I thought my adventure in this beautiful music business was over. We were in desperate need of change.
First off, understand that Johnny, Adam, Dan, and myself are the absolute closest of friends. I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, they are some of the most genuine, greatest people I know.
We figured out exactly what kind of change we needed. We needed to have fun being in a band again, putting everything and anything into it…and we needed to have every member dedicate themselves 150% or more. A new singer was what we needed to get back to that level.
We didn’t want to change singers to some kid we found through MySpace or whatever. We decided to write with our long time friend Micah Bentley. He is a very talented song writer from our hometown and old high school. We honestly had no idea how it would pan out. I feel like the results speak for themselves. I have never been so happy to be in a band.
This was a decision that was made for our families, manager, crew, friends, and especially you guys. We want to be in a position where we are happy again. We want to make sure that the leader of this band is real. Someone that would not do the things that Torry did to his friends. This band is stronger than I have ever seen in the last 8 years. I was worried, but now I know, this was the greatest decision ever made by us. We are having fun again.
The new singer of A Change of Pace is Micah Bentley. This is not some random kid off the streets!!! We have known Micah for years. Not only is Micah a brilliant musician, he is truly a good person. Come out to the shows and introduce yourself to him, and you can find out for yourself.
Feel free to ask questions or leave comments for Micah welcoming him. If you feel like leaving something negative – GO BLOG!!!! hahah.
We are still the same A Change of Pace. We will still be playing all the old songs. This wasn’t the Torry Jasper band. This is A Change of Pace. You guys are more A Change of Pace than he ever will be. WE ARE BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
