(drums) who was later replaced by Aaron Gainer.
After performing no more than 12 live shows, the band recorded a demo and went to New York City where they performed at an industry showcase Read more on Last.fm
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victim's in Las Vegas.
Now over 50 people have lost their lives, and over 200+ injured. This is now the deadliest mass shooting in our countries history. Thank you to the Heroes and first responders everywhere and especially the ones that went into the 32nd floor hotel room and on the ground for stopping this gunman.

So as you all have seen and heard by now, the tour that we were doing with Shallow Side had been cancelled. I have gotten 95% of posts, texts, calls and emails that were angry and hateful towards myself and the band. Some were creative and some were just insane. We have been doing this for 17 years. There are many factors that went into this decision. None of which were easy or enjoyable. I have many things happening in my life that. I can't and won't go into details because it's personal. We have had a longstanding relationship with 313 entertainment (booking agent). I had actually partnered with him for several shows. We still have love for him. There was another agent that came into the fold to "help" with this tour. We talked about what we could and would do as far as a tour goes. We have also had a great reputation with almost every band we've toured with over 17 years. It's sad to see true colors come out when adversity hits. There were so many hateful comments from random people, fans, friends and other bands. I won't go into slandering other bands and I won't attack people that have threatened me or the band. I will stick by my band and our reasons. We were told about this tour and told the powers that be that we weren't able to tour for more than a few weeks at a time due to personal reasons. That was ignored and the full tour was posted. We tried to figure out how to make it work and then we realized that we couldn't do it without pissing everyone off. For those of you that have met us, seen us at a show, or just hung out at random places, you know that we love playing live and spending time with our friends, fans and family. I am sorry that this tour didn't work out. I want to apologize to the guys in Another Lost Year. They are great guys and a great band. We love them regardless of how they might feel currently. I will not make excuses and I will not bow down to the hateful words that are being thrown our way. Again, I am sorry to anyone that was coming to these shows and to those fans that we lost due to this incident. You will choose how you feel about us and this tour. I can't change that. If you want to blame me, then go ahead. I'll take the blame. I thank those of you that are willing to stick with us and those that jumped on an internet bandwagon to hate us. We still love you all.
