This kind of thing happens when everyone in the band buys instruments and accessories guaranteed to "cut/punch/blast/slash through the rest of the band." Something has to give and often it's the vocalist.
The RHCP have a lot of finesse as musicians and relied as much on technique and mood as raw volume. You guys need to play together a lot more and discuss your volume balance but you could attain that kind of polish, where you vocalist could concentrate more on singing and less on yelling.
