Abilene’s “Close Your Eyes” Return with New Singer, Album and Video

To say that things have changed in the lives of Abilene pop punk/hardcore rockers “Close Your Eyes” is an understatement. The band has seen their fair share of lineup changes as well as a “tweak” to their sound.

Now, they are back with their third album (Line in the Sand) as well as a video for their new single “Frame and Glass”.

After Shane Raymond left the band (now with These Days), they enlisted a touring singer then finally landed new singer Sam Ryder Robinson, of Blessed by a Broken Heart. Their new album has hints of their traditionally heavier sound with songs like “Sleeping Giant” and the pop/punk song “The End”. But it also ventures into new territories with tracks like “Frame and Glass,” “Trends and Phases,” and “Kings of John Payne”.

Anytime you change a singer in a band, you’ll always have those diehard fans that express their displeasure, but I have heard from quite a few that Sam really delivers on the older stuff when the band performs them live.

Whether you like change or not, give their new tunes a listen and let me know what you think.

If you haven’t heard their new song, then check it out here in their new video.
