Swarm of Eyes Vocalist Growls, Screams, and Now Sings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Swarm of Eyes lead singer Randy Carter has added “singing” and “yodeling” to his ever-expanding vocal repertoire.

“I figured, George and Deej can play more than three chords… EACH! And Jeff plays bass using more than one string. It was time for me to step up my game,” said Carter. “I want to be known as more than just a megalomaniac with a wicked-awesome jheri curl and impeccably groomed sideburns. I want to be known as an artist who takes his craft seriously, too.”

In an effort to hone his vocal chops, Carter enlisted the aid of iconic metal yodeler Sven Lindstrom. Lindstrom is recognized for his innovative “power yodeling” techniques, best exemplified on his landmark albums, Metal Up Your Alps and Run to the Hills in Lederhosen.

As a result of Lindstrom’s tutelage, fans can expect an even greater range of diversity in Randy Carter’s vocals when Swarm of Eyes actually gets off their collective asses to play a string of live shows this summer.
