Locked In A Vacancy calling it quits
Locked In A Vacancy vocalist Dyami Bryant has left the group following a personal health crisis. As a result, the remaining members of the New York City metal/hardcore outfit will start a new band. Here's the official word from the band: "On the morning of April 7th Dyami Bryant, vocalist for Locked In A Vacancy, was rushed to a hospital in NYC after having severe stomach pains for over 6 hours. He was eventually diagnosed as having a serious gastro-intestinal condition, and after numerous tests underwent surgery 3 days later. With Dyami recuperating in the hospital the band was forced to cancel their string of shows with The Breathing Process, as well as a few shows in late April/early May that we had really been looking forward to playing. After about 2 and a half weeks in the hospital and a few days with family, Dyami finally returned home earlier this week to finish recuperating at home. Unfortunately, this sudden illness affected Dyami pretty deeply physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and he now feels lead to step down from his position as the vocalist for Locked In A Vacancy. We as a band don't believe we can go on as Locked In A Vacancy without him. He was an enormous part of this band and we feel nobody could properly replace him. His writing and singing we feel are a huge part of what made us LIAV. We all hope that Dyami gets well soon, and we wish him the best! There will more than likely be a final show or string of shows with Dyami singing once he’s fully recovered from his weakened state and 100% better – we’ll keep you posted! The remaining members of LIAV will continue on under a different name. We were already working on new material that will more than likely end up being used in the new project. We are currently seeking a new vocalist for this project - interested parties can contact us via our Myspace page."
