A few weeks ago Florida based metalcore band Decoder kicked out their frontman Spencer Pearson for supposed drug and alcohol abuse and shortly following that their bassist Bryce Sipes left. Pearsons was obviously not pleased with the light the band painted him in and Sipes seems to have not been pleased with the entire music industry. In any case a lawsuit was filed and Decoder is now known as Lead Hands.
Here is the official statement:
“As of today our band is now under the name Lead Hands. Due to member changes and a lawsuit over our name we were forced to change it. Aside the name change we would like to introduce your to our new guitarist Vinny Capitani and our good friend Liam Thomas on bass and will be taking over the position of clean vocals. In the next few days we will be posting an introduction video and go a little more in depth with what has been happening. Thank you all for your continued support and we love you all more then you know.”
