Heart of a Coward have parted ways with their vocalist Ben Marvin because of complications inside the band. They are now looking for a new vocalist, who will also be singing on their upcoming debut full-length album (which is as yet unnamed). The album's schedule remains the same. They write: "Unfortunately we have parted ways with our vocalist due to complications within the band. We would like to thank Ben for everything he did within Heart of a coward and wish him the best for the future. We're now hunting for a new vocalist to complete our line up, make their addition to our new album which has been recorded. Should you wish to audition, contact carl dot sewell at thelegacyagency dot co dot uk." A studio update video is expected to be posted later today.
