Vocalist Michael Crafter, formerly of the the Australian metal band I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN, has left Victory Records metalcore titans BURY YOUR DEAD less than two months after being named the group's new lead singer.

Commented Crafter: "Since I got to the USA, I knew I had a lot of weight on my shoulders. I wanted to prove myself so much and be a good frontman for BURY YOUR DEAD.

"It's been two months since I got to the USA and all I have wanted is to be home with my friends and this stops me from giving my all.

"I met a lot of great people here.

"My time with the band was short and was a lot of fun and a great experience. Eric, Bubble, Slim and Mark became my new mates and I'll forever be grateful I got given this chance.

"This tour has opened my eyes up to a lot of things and being in a band in another country isn't what I want to do.

"Practicing and playing shows with BURY YOUR DEAD will always be a great memory and something I'm glad I gave a shot. But my home is Australia and home is where the heart is."

BURY YOUR DEAD has reportedly tapped CASSIUS frontman Myke Terry as its new vocalist.

The band is in the middle of the "Don't Call It A Comeback" headlining tour with SUICIDE SILENCE, STICK TO YOUR GUNS and SINCE THE FLOOD.
