Rochester, NY pop-punk band SUCH GOLD has had a rough past few weeks. First came the stabbing of lead singer Ben Kotin in early April, which he spoke about only last week for the first time. Then, the band was forced to pull out of the Man Scout Jamboree Tour while they figured out how to move forward. Now comes news of a line-up change right before they embark on their May tour with Living With Lions.
From Such Gold,
“Last week we announced that our good friend Skylar Sarkis will be filling in for Ben on vocals for our upcoming May dates with Living With Lions. This week we would like to announce that after our May tour, Skylar will permanently replace Tim Heald on guitar. Tim is leaving on good terms and he will be missed.
Although Skylar currently lives and attends school in Boston, he is an old friend of ours from home, and was the first person we considered contacting when it was time to find a replacement. He is a talented guitar player, a dedicated band-mate, and we’re confident that he’ll be a great addition to Such Gold. We look forward to touring and writing our full-length with him this Spring.
With Tim gone and Skylar on vocal duty, our good friend Kevin Mahoney from Hit The Lights will be filling in on guitar for a few of our May dates.
