well my bands vocalist just quit

im really gutted about it

we have a gig in 4 weeks,

and i dont know wat to do because im not sure anyone else can replicate his vocals and just his way of writing lyrics

should i stick it out and try to find a new singer or just quit?

i know its kinda stupid question i just dont know what to do

thanks

Why would your entire band break up if the singer quit? 4 weeks should give you SOME time to prepare. Can someone else in the band sing until then? If it's 2 weeks before the gig and you still haven't found anyone or have no options, I would cancel.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

unless your singer was professional quality, then just replace him. Sure no one can sing just like him, so you'll have to change a little.

can you (thread starter) sing?

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

There's plenty of bands where some people quit for various reasons but the band kept going and had done well. No point leaving unless you were only in that band for the vocalist, but if that was the case you probably shouldn't have been there at all.
Jackson DKMG & KE3, Fender Mexican Strat, Stagg Acoustic

Boss Compressor & Chorus, Dunlop Crybaby, Behringer Delay, ISP Decimator, Ibanez Tubescreamer

Laney TT50H, Marshall 1960A, Roland Cube 15

Looking to jam in Belfast, PM me!

^That's what I'm thinking.

Just one gig before he leaves, kind of as a goodbye concert.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

nah thats not gonna happen now

the bassist quit aswell......he thinks the same as me that the band wouldnt be the same without the vocalist

but..me, the other guitarist and the drummer arnt just gonna give up now

I would have to say give yourself some time right now to either learn and/or find a replacement. One question, did your singer have his own PA or yeah how did that work?

iron maiden. dickinson quit and they got some guy who (in my opinion) sounded nothing like him (and not as good) to replace him.
