The band had made the announcement about the departure of their vocalist Mikey Powell with the following statement;

"After 5 years and 2 albums, Conducting From The Grave have decided to part ways with vocalist Mikey Powell. We wish him the best and love all the work he did vocally on Revenants and our self titled album. Reasons behind this are mainly geographical and financial. He lives near Los Angeles and we are based in Sacramento. We used to tour quite frequently, but over the last two years of minimal band activity (3-5 shows per year) band members' priorities in life have changed. A rift of sorts developed, and he has expressed interest in stepping down as our front man in the past. Since we are now old man weekend warriors it doesn't make sense to have a band member that lives 350 miles away. We are still moving forward with the re-recorded re-release of our debut EP "Trials of the Forsaken", and the 10 year anniversary shows booked for May 1st-3rd. Our ex vocalist Drew Winter will be handling vocal duties. You can hear his most recent work vocally in the band Shadow of the Colossus. Come check out the shows, our friends in Aenimus and Flub are joining us for all 3!"

Taking over will be ex-vocalist Drew Winter whose done work in the band Shadow of the Colossus. If that's not enough the band's original vocalist Shaun Gier will be making a guest appearance on the band's re-recorded and re-release of their debut EP "Trial of the Forsaken" the band had this to say about his re-appearance;

"Our original vocalist Shaun Gier stopped by my home studio today to track guest vocals on our EP re-release, and this happened when my girlfriend and her mom came home lol. He was in the band before Drew Winter and wrote/phrased the last 4 songs of the EP. He's going to hop on stage for a song or two at the Boardwalk in Orangevale May 1st."
