Shattered Skies split with singer Sean

Shattered Skies have split with singer Sean Murphy, they’ve confirmed.

The rising-star prog metal outfit vow they’ll get themselves back on track quickly – and they’ll play some instrumental shows while searching for a new vocalist.

Shattered Skies say: “Sean has been an amazing person from day one and we wish him absolutely nothing but the best. We’d like to thank him for the experiences and memories over four years.

“While this is a sad day for us, the band is planning to move forward with purpose. Our second album is already written and being recorded with a view to a 2016 release. We do not plan on changing that.

“We’ve had several obstacles over the past couple of years – but our resolve is stronger than ever. We all want to get out there, work harder and play more shows than ever before.”

Shattered Skies will make audition arrangements in due course, while delivering a number of shows as a three-piece. They add: “This is not over – we’ll be back stronger than ever.”

They released debut album The World We Used To Know in January.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
