Volumes’ Myke Terry has injured his eyeball in a “freak accident.” He said the following:
“Im good y’all. Freak accident on the bus. A sheet of glass fell on me and cut my eyeball in the back lounge.”
Volumes have premiered a new video for their new song “On Her Mind” feat. Pouya. This song is from the band’s new album “Different Animals,” which will be released June 9.
Volumes have completed work on their new album, and are currently mixing/mastering the effort. There are not many details available yet, but you can check out a teaser of the track “On Her Mind,” which features guest vocals from rapper Pouya.
Volumes have signed a new deal with Fearless Records, and to celebrate they premiered a new video for their new song “Feels Good.” This is the band’s first single with new vocalist Myke Terry (ex-Bury Your Dead).
Terry the following about the track:
“This song is about realizing we all have a story to tell. Everyone has to deal with their own problems and demons. There’s beauty in finding the strength to pull yourself out of darkness. It’s horribly bleak when you’re down in the trenches…. It feels good to come out on top.”
Volumes recently revealed that Myke Terry (ex-Bury Your Dead) had joined the band as their new vocalist. Now, the group have discussed their decision to add Terry to their lineup. You can read their statement about that, along with some comments about albums missing from streaming services, below.
“#VTEAM– Volumes have received a bunch of comments/questions with our recent announcements, so being that we are stand-up guys, we are going to address a few of them for you. Take it for what it is..
1. the previous albums are not on iTunes, Spotify or anywhere right now. This is due to some a “behind the scenes” business situation that we aren’t going to bore you with. Soon enough they will be back available. Once they are we will be sure to let you all know. Thank you for your patience.
2. We did hold auditions for the new vocalist position. We listened to all 400+ of them that were submitted (again and again). There were some great auditions and some not so great. We had some people personally fly out/travel out to audition in person for multiple tryouts. It was a tough decision with a lot of talented people. Myke Terry auditioned just like everyone else. It just so happens that we felt he was the best one OVERALL for several different reasons, regardless of the fact that he was in a known band before. We are extremely excited to have him be a part of Volumes. He is already a true friend and brother to us.
3. We did not go out to find a replacement to sound exactly like Mike Barr. Mike was a huge part of Volumes and just doesn’t make sense to try to find someone to mimic him. He left to pursue his own path and we respect that and hope only great things for him. With that being said, we took this situation and made it into an opportunity to write a NEW chapter in Volumes history.
We are excited that we were able to go into this new album with a fresh perspective with different ideas to explore. As musicians it just doesn’t make sense to continue to completely copy the sounds of previous releases, for the fans OR for us. That shit gets boring and stale and if that’s what you are hoping for..sorry. This new album will undoubtedly be VOLUMES, but ultimately it’s your choice to like it or not. If not–don’t worry..there are tons of other bands you can go listen to–however, WE happen to love it and we feel you will as well.
PS— there is no plan for any new Voltures..sorry, it was a fun idea, but we are ALL onto other things at this point”
