This came from the CLOSE YOUR EYES camp today, and I am so pumped to finally be able to publicly talk about how pumped I am that Sam Ryder is the new singer!!
We are very excited to finally be able to share with everyone that Sam Robinson is the vocalist of Close Your Eyes. I’m already blown away by the new material that we have been working on - his voice is a very strong addition to the CYE family. He is an incredible vocalist and a great guy that shares our vision and purpose. We cannot wait for everyone to hear the new songs and to be back on tour again. Come hang out and say what's up to Sam!
