It was reported back in 2012 that The Butterfly Effect‘s singer Clint Boge had left the band, leaving the group on hiatus after a farewell tour. The band have now announced their return with new singer Paul Gallagher, releasing their new single, Eyes Down.
The band recently announced a run of live dates. Appearing on the band’s website out of the blue, they led fans to frenzied speculation about the future of the group. New singer Paul Gallagher was chosen by the band after an extensive nationwide search for a vocalist who not only subscribed to the band’s ethos, but could meet their demanding touring schedule and suitably perform the band’s repertoire.
New single Eyes Down also features vocals by Flynn Gower of The Occupants and formerly of Cog. The awesome new track was a gift to Butterfly Effect’s notoriously committed fans, who received it for free via the band’s mailing list.
Speaking about the group’s fans, drummer Ben Hall said:
“Our fans are what keep us going. Many of them have been with us from the start and they are as much a part of The Butterfly Effect as what we are, so it’s important for us to give back to them as we move into the next stage.
“‘Eyes Down’ has moved a little more towards our original sound, so we’re taking it back to our roots- small venues and indie ethos to prove ourselves again.”
Gallagher will be keeping a low profile until the band’s debut show with the new lineup, which kicks off 10th October at The Zoo, Brisbane. Said Hall: “It’s about introducing him to people in our natural environment–on the stage. Everyone will get to know Paul in time, but he’ll be walking on stage in Brisbane for the first time and we’ll let the band do the talking–just like we always have.”
