Let's hope that 2017 is a little better for the music scene. But so far, we're not off to the best start. Earlier today Crown The Empire announced that their singer Dave Escamilla is no longer a part pf the band. A couple days ago the band had also announced that he would not be a part of the UK/European tour, so it seems this was somewhat foreseen. Whether the band fired David or if he left the band is not entirely clear, but in recent comments and posts David revealed how he really felt towards their last album Retrograde (saying he was "not proud of it") and also tweeted that he "needed a new life."
