As I’ve written here before, I’ve long been a huge Blind Melon fan. Loved Shannon Hoon, thought much of their music was genius. Even last year, when they reunited and dropped an album with a new lead singer (Travis Warren), I thought they were awfully good.
Well, they’ve dumped Warren and are looking for a new voice. Just find the whole thing intriguing. This is off of their MySpace site:
Given our convoluted recent history and taking into consideration all
the questions we’ve been receiving about our status, now seems like a
good time for a State of the Melon address. As we previously
mentioned, our New Year’s Eve show in Detroit was the final show with
Travis. We’re continuing our search to find a singer that fits the band.
If you know anybody who’s great, have ’em send an mp3 to
firstname.lastname@example.org. All future shows, including the tour in
Japan are being put on hold until we find a singer who can help us
move forward with a new record. We are all writing new songs now with
the anticipation of releasing a new album as soon as we can find a
piece to fit our puzzle. We’ll let you know when things get
that is all.
