20160325 - We have a big and announcement to make
We are sad to announce that Mike has decided to leave Starblind. We’ve had a great journey together, making music, meeting fantastic people and forming lifelong memories. Never could we have imagined being through all these experiences together forming the band only three years ago.
But now is the time for us to go our separate ways. We; Daniel, Björn, JJ and Zak will continue on with Starblind and are now searching for a new lead vocalist.
We wish Mikey all the best on his future musical career and are very anxious to hear about his new project.
Starblind will come back in full force when we are, again, a holy quintet.

STARBLIND "DYING SON" - COVER, TRACKLIST, RELEASE DATE: 04TH DECEMBER 2015 worldwide on Pure Steel Records
The release date of the STARBLIND album „Dying Son“ on CD is December 04th, 2015. The pre-order phase will start on November 20th, 2015..
Following the brand new signing of STARBLIND with Pure Steel Records in March 2015, STARBLINDS sophomore album "Dying Son" is soon to be unleashed upon the world, following up their album debut "Darkest Horrors" from 2014. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden; STARBLIND are here to deliver traditional Heavy Metal as if time had stood still since 1984.
Their music can be described as catchy Heavy Metal with majestic twin guitar leads, pumping bass guitar, dynamic drums and melodic, powerful vocals. No attempts has been done to hide the influences when writing the material to "Dying Son". And it stands clear that the metal giants from Great Britain are the main ones.
"Dying Son" contains everything from fast songs like "The Lighthouse" and "A Dying Son", to mid-tempo "Firestone" and "Sacrifice", to the 11 ½ ¬minute opus "The Land of Seven Rivers Beyond the Sea".
STARBLINDs sophomore album "Dying Son" have been recorded live in the studio and is produced by Rocka Rollas/Blazon Stone mastermind Cedrick Forsberg. Because of the philosophy of no guitar dubbing, no triggers and no metronome when recording, the album has a very authentic and organic feel. What you get on the album, is what you get live!
To the fans of 80 ́s metal and of the "New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal", this is a record you cannot miss!
