Enterprise Earth Confirm Fill-In Vocalist For Immediate Live Shows In The Wake Of Dan Watson’s Exit


Deathcore outfit Enterprise Earth have now issued a statement regarding the departure of their vocalist Dan Watson. In it they confirm that Travis Worland (Aethere, The Willow, etc.) will continue to fill-in at their immediate live shows with a permanent replacement for Watson still pending.

Prior to his newly announced exit, Watson had been sitting out shows with the band since last September. Speaking earlier today (April 12th,) Enterprise Earth offered:

“Today, we announce that Dan Watson is no longer a part of Enterprise Earth

First, we would live to thank all of you for being patient with us while we have worked through this situation. It has not been an easy year and the time has not been right to say this. We have had to process a lot of emotional thoughts, feelings and conversations but it appears that fate is pulling us in different directions and we have all decided this course of action is the best for the band and Dan.

Quite simply, we must acknowledge that our time together has come to an end. We love him and wish him nothing but the best. We are all extremely proud and thankful for everything Dan has done in the past 8 years with EE. Our latest album ‘The Chosen‘ was the culmination of our work together and it would not have turned out the way it did without him.

Albeit an unexpected ending to the story, we still cherish every memory, song, performance, party, good and bad time, and all of the experiences we’ve shared. It has been quite the wild ride.

We strongly encourage you to support any and all of Dan‘s musical work going forward, including his other band Mire Lore who will have new material out soon. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented vocalists and of us have ever worked with and we hope an expect his creative fire to continue on.

Enterprise Earth still has much more to say. This band has evolved so much over its existence and we have adapted and overcome many obstacles. Nothing good in life comes easy and suffering and setbacks are part of the process but we will continue on as our story and work here is not over.

Being in a band is one the hardest, yet most rewarding, things we have done and working through our struggles we will become stronger. We will continue to have the strength to be the people and the band that we are supposed to be. As far as who will be handling vocal duties, if you have seen us or seen live pictures over the past 6-7 months then you know that Travis Worland has been filling in and has been doing an AMAZING job.

Dan‘s vocal shoes are not easy to fill but you’ve seen us perform with Travis then you know he is more than capable. He will continue to handle all live vocal duties until further notice. Stay tuned for an announcement regarding a permanent vocalist…

To quote Dan‘s final lyrics in ‘Overpass‘, ‘Death is only the beginning’. This is symbolic for Dan and us as we both move onto the next stages of our lives. Live is unexpected and change is inevitable, to fight it is futile. We must acknowledge and move with the ebb and flow.

Thank you all for, hopefully and finally, understanding where we’ve been with this. If you are upset, we understand and hope you come back around in time. Take care of one another out there’ we love you and and will see you soon”
