Crown The Empire's Lead Vocalist, David Escamilla Leaves After 5 Years

By  January 9, 2017

If you're a hardcore rock fan, you'd know that David Escamilla of Crown the Empire has officially left the band after over 5 years of being their lead vocalist.

The remaining members of the band, Andrew Rockhold, Brandon Hoover, Brent Taddie and Hayden Tree, released a long statement regarding this matter on Facebook. The band was brutally honest about the behind-the-scenes of Crown the Empire as well as David's involvement (or lack of) in the group, and fans have expressed their two cents on how it was all approached.

 

Shortly after, David himself posted his side of the story, admitting to a lot of his personal life, and also talking about his journey with the band.

 
 

It is quite clear from the comments, that many fans quickly took his side and expressed their best wishes to him.

Admittedly, the band's official statement could have been worded a lot nicer while still being honest about the goings on and David's lack of participation. Also, instead of dedicating the entire post to what David did contribute (a whole 5 years of smashing vocals), or even just to talking about the reasons behind his departure, the band not so subtly shone the spotlight on friend and "biggest part of Crown The Empire's song writing process," [interview with Room Thirteen] Brendan Barone and talked about what he brought to the table instead.

Needless to say, the fans' reactions and responses were quite appropriate, but at the end of the day, everyone including the remaining members of Crown the Empire are looking forward to see what the future holds for David.
