Texas melodic hardcore group Close Your Eyes have just announced the replacement of their bassist and vocalist Sonny Vega with Alex Whitten. On the replacement, the band commented:
Sonny and his wife are having a baby and he would like to be home to be a full time husband and dad. We are super happy for Sonny, and it just worked out that a long time friend of the band, Alex Whitten, was finishing college at the same time. So, Alex will be taking Sonny’s place in the band.
The group’s last album featuring Vega was Line in the Sand, which was released on October 29th, 2013 via Victory Records.
