After searching high and low, The Butterfly Effect has announced a new singer in Paul Galagher and released a new single ‘Eyes Down’.
It was only last year that The Butterfly Effect went out on a National farewell tour with their previous vocalist Clint Boge and released a chart topping DVD titled ‘Effected’. Many speculated that this would mark an extended extended hiatus for the band.
But, the band surprised fans last week when they posted upcoming live dates and a change in their management. Which indicated the ball was once again rolling and new material could be on the horizon.
Little did we know that they would be announcing a new vocalist after a nationwide search for someone who personifies the band’s spirit, can perform their extensive catalogue and can handle their often-intense tour schedule.
The first single with Galagher ‘Eyes Down’ will feature backing vocals from The Occupants’ (and ex-Cog) vocalist Flynn Gower and is available for free to those on the band’s mailing list.
“Eyes Down has moved a little more toward our original sound, so we’re taking it back to our roots – small venues and indie ethos to prove ourselves again” said drummer Ben Hall.
Galagher will be keeping a low profile in the lead up to their return to the stage to allow him to settle in properly. “Everyone will get to know Paul in time, but he’ll be walking on stage in Brisbane for the first time and we’ll let the band do the talking – just like we always have” said Hall.
The Butterfly Effect will be showing off their new singer throughout October.
