Oh, Sleeper is one of my favorite metalcore band, though they have been off my radar for a while. Their last record Children of Fire was astounding, and I gave it a perfect score, and I still hold true to my opinion. A while ago, Oh, Sleeper announced rhythm guitarist James Erwin would be leaving the band. In response, Oh, Sleeper has moved Nate Grady, their old bassist, to guitar duties. Here is an official statement from the band:

“Greetings Archers!

We wish our brother James Erwin all the best in his future endeavors and we are very excited to announce our new guitarist. Nate Grady, will be moving from bass to guitar. For those of you who don’t know, Nate was a student of Shane‘s for quite some time and is an absolute beast on guitar.

His switch to guitar opens up a whole new world of playing for us, a world of shredtacular riffs never before played in Oh, Sleeper. We are very excited to have him as we begin the writing process for the NEW OH SLEEPER ABLUM TO BE RELEASED NEXT YEAR!

Get excited, because this next Oh,Sleeper album will be unlike anything you have ever heard from us before.

Now, without further ado, we introduce Nate Grady.”

So yeah, Oh, Sleeper is going to be just fine. Some spectacular news is that Oh, Sleeper will be releasing a new album next year, and the band is promising something new. I can’t wait.

– GR
