UPDATE: It would seem that Oceano are done for.

Just to clear everything up, Oceano is NOT looking for a new singer. New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will be one of the last Oceano shows ever, and yes, Adam will be there. Thanks for all of your support.

Yesterday in the wake of all the shock and awe of Killswitch Engage moving on without vocalist Howard Jones, Lambgoat pointed out that Adam Warren has also apparently left Oceano. The coincidences don’t stop there; where I speculated that Howard leaving Killswitch may have been related to allegedly knocking up a porn star that one time, Adam left Oceano because all all the touring was apparently preventing him from seeing his son grow up. D’awwww.

Here’s what Adam had to say:

“I’m shocked [about Howard’s departure], but well… If Killswitch can go on after 9 years and 3 albums without Mr. Jones on vox…. Why couldn’t a certain band with out me? (2 albums and a mere 3 years) Just sayin.”I got a son that’s growing quick to provide for and I don’t wanna miss a second of it. I keep it real. I’m workin on some projects here at home, they’ll pop up when I get time away from father duties to dig deeper.”
I don’t like Oceano at all, but my best wishes goes out to Adam. That’s a bold move, and he should be respected for being there for his family. There hasn’t been an official statement from Oceano yet, aside from jokingly asking for Howard’s demo. We might update you on their vocalist situation if we decide to care (or if Howard actually takes them up on the offer).
