Line-Up Changes

The band had travelled around the UK on many tours supporting a number of different bands in support of their debut album 'Nightmares'. After a lengthy stint around the country as an opening act to SikTh and Dead Man In Reno, it became clear that the touring life was not suited to vocalist Matt Johnson, and so during their first headline UK tour in January of 2007 it was announced that the show at Oxford was to be Matt's last with the band. New vocalist Sam Carter joined the band onstage for 'The Darkest Tomb' as an introduction to the fans.
